Hrg. 106-14: Offshore Oil and Gas Activity Impact: Hearing before the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, United States Senate, One Hundred Sixth Congress, First Session on the Impacts of Coastal Areas and Commnunities Caused by Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration and Development, January 27, 1999   [open pdf - 188KB]

From the opening statement of Frank H. Murkowski: "We are going to hear testimony today from those that are most affected by the offshore oil and gas production, the States and communities who share their coast for the national interest of domestic energy production. There will be a number of future hearings to examine in depth the three titles of the bill that Senator Landrieu and I have introduced, to provide coastal impact assistance. The purpose of this hearing is simply to basically lay down the legislation. Currently, Federal OCS production is authorized to occur off the coast of six States. That is Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, a part of California, and parts of Alaska. Although, in Alaska, there is no significant production off of our coast at this time." Statements, letters, and material submitted for the record include those of the following: Jeff Bingaman, Jack C. Calwell, Peter G. Fitzgerald, Bob Graham, Mary L. Landrieu, Blanche L. Lincoln, Trent Lott, Frank H. Murkowski, Mike Navarre, Dr. Donald F. Oltz, James I. Palmer, Jr., Jeff Sessions, Mark Van Putten, and Jim Whitaker.
