Congressman Gibbs Votes to Expand Offshore Energy Production


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Bob Gibbs (OH-7) released the following statement after voting for H.R. 2231, the Offshore Energy and Jobs Act:

"Today, my colleagues in the House and I voted to lower fuel prices, create jobs and grow our economy. By allowing for expanded offshore energy production, H.R. 2231 creates 1.2 million American jobs over the long term. According to CBO, the legislation would also generate $1.5 billion in new federal revenues over 10 years, which helps pay down our outrageous national debt. As of today, 85% of offshore areas have been blocked from offshore drilling by the Obama Administration.

This bill also makes significant strides toward energy independence and security by decreasing our dependence on foreign sources of energy. I am proud that the House stood together today to support this legislation that addresses our outrageous gas prices and struggling economy." -- U.S. Rep. Bob Gibbs (OH-7)
