FreedomWorks Foundation Praises Interior Secretary Zinke’s Plan to Expand Offshore Energy Exploration
FreedomWorks Foundation President Adam Brandon offered the following comments on Sec. Zinke’s announcement:
"The American energy renaissance that has occurred over the past decade has created millions of high-paying jobs and reduced prices Americans pay, not just at the pump, but throughout our economy. This occurred almost entirely in spite of the federal government, which under the Obama administration repeatedly sought to obstruct the oil and gas industry through red tape.
“Today marks a huge milestone in the federal government working to actually encourage American energy dominance, and we applaud President Trump, the Department of Interior and Secretary Zinke for it. With nearly a quarter of all of America’s oil and gas resources existing in areas under federal control, this new approach will cement America’s newfound status as a top energy producer."
