Dems Look For Cover on Drilling
7th District Congressional Candidate Craig Williams is trying to hammer this as well.
"This bill is nothing more than a sham designed to provide political
cover for endangered Democrats like Joe Sestak," said Williams, in a press release. "This bill does little to increase access to
domestic energy resources while locking away access to the most
promising areas of oil recovery off our coasts. It locks away forever
access to 97 percent of the oil resources off the coast of California -
more than 10 billion barrels of oil. It also blocks access to drilling
of the coast of Alaska, fertile grounds for oil recovery that has never
before been restricted."
