Cosponsor–Protecting Against Tyranny and Responsible Imports Act

Protect Our Coastlines by Keeping the Well Control Rule in Place

We invite you to join us in urging Secretary Zinke to prioritize the economic vitality of our clean coastlines and wildlife resources by keeping in place the Well Control Rule, a common-sense safety regulation. At a time when nearly all of America’s coastal
waters have been placed on the table for increased oil and gas drilling, the Trump Administration has simultaneously taken steps to ease regulations such as this that govern the oil and gas industry. This would be an enormous mistake.

Cosponsor H.R. 5291 the Offshore Wind Jobs and Opportunity Act

In order to take full advantage of this burgeoning field, we need to make sure American workers are fully trained and ready to pave the way for growth and innovation in this new American energy industry.
