Issa: Congress Must Move to Boost Energy Production

Thursday, 12 May 2011 02:26 PM

By Dan Weil

Congress must act to ensure that the Obama administration doesn’t prevent a needed increase in energy production, says California GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government and Reform.

Issa, energy, congress“As gas prices across the United States approach $4 a gallon, Congress has a responsibility to ensure that political agendas and the administration’s bureaucratic delays do not block efforts to lower energy costs and use our nation’s abundant natural resources,” he writes on Politico. “Increasing oil and gas production — both offshore and on — is essential to our energy future.”

Hydraulic fracturing must be part of the equation, Issa argues. “We must also eliminate the excessive regulatory barriers to offshore drilling. With this, Washington can pave the way to an independent energy future.”
