Alternate Title: Serial No. 104-55: U.S. Energy Policy, Oversight Hearing Before the Committee on Resources, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourth Congress, Second Session on Domestic Energy Policy as it Relates to the Development of Oil and Gas Production in the United States and How We Can Become Less Dependent on Foreign Imports, February 2, 1996

This is the February 2, 1996 oversight hearing on "U.S. Energy Policy," held before the U.S. House Committee on Resources. From the opening statement of Sheila Jackson Lee: "Much like the auto industry, the energy industry is a highly integrated part of the United States' economy. Not only does the industry directly supply jobs but it is also intricately linked with the banking, petrochemical, rubber, machine and construction industries. Each $1 million invested in the oil and gas extraction industry creates approximately 20 new jobs in all sectors of the economy, certainly an important impact in this area. Hence, new growth in the energy sector directly translates into new jobs and economic growth. It is for these reasons that I am happy to see this Congressional committee investigating this issue and looking for ways to encourage domestic oil and gas exploration and production, and doing so, I think, with an objective balance between this need and the environment." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David Beshear, Pete Brown, Ernest A. Burguieres, Victor Burk, Ernest H. Cockrell, William L. Fisher, Joe Foster, Robert William Gilmer, Milton L. Holloway, Richard D. Kinder, William LeMay, Garry Mauro, Robert A. Mosbacher, Cecil E. Nix, R. H. Rawle, Carole Keeton Rylander, Douglas V.
