House Passes Bill to Replace Administration's Offshore Drilling Plan

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Today Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) voted for H.R. 6082, the Congressional Replacement of President Obama's Energy-Restricting and Job-Limiting Offshore Drilling Plan. At a time when our economy is suffering and gas prices increase day by day, America needs a stable source of energy and more jobs. This nation is the only one in the world that places most of our offshore territory off limits to oil and gas drilling. H.R. 6082, which passed with bipartisan support, proposes a smarter, safe, environmentally sound, and economically responsible drilling plan.

"We should be saying yes to all types of American energy," said Poe. "Yes to more offshore drilling; yes to ANWR; yes to faster approval of permits; and yes to the Keystone XL pipeline."
