Examining the Future Impacts of President Obama's Off-Shore Energy Plan, Oversight Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources of the Committee on Natural Resources, U.S. House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourteenth Congress, First Session, April 15, 2015 [open pdf - 3MB]
"This is the April 15, 2015 hearing on 'Examining the Future Impacts of President Obama's Off-Shore Energy Plan' held before the House Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources. From the opening statement of Doug Lamborn: 'Today's hearing will focus on the draft proposed Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program for 2017-2022, also known as the 5-year plan. This plan has the lowest number of lease sales ever, at 14, and that is being generous, in assuming that all of the sales remain in the final plan. It includes extensive buffer zones which take valuable resources off the table for the next 5 years. The shining hope for an Atlantic sale is dimmed when we remember that an Atlantic sale was scheduled to take place off the coast of Virginia in 2011. Now the earliest it can occur under this draft plan is 2021, a decade later. Again, that is only if the one Atlantic lease sale remains in the final plan, which is not guaranteed. This is not a demonstration of commitment to more oil and gas production.' Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Doug Lamborn, Alan S. Lowenthal, Chett C. Chiasson, Robert Hobbs, Abigail Hopper, Pat McCrory, Mark Shuster, and Emilie Swearingen."
