President Biden’s Actions on Offshore Wind Leasing a Positive
Last week, CEA issued the following statement after President Biden announced executive actions relating to energy production.
“CEA is encouraged by President Biden’s executive actions to open the Gulf of Mexico to leasing for offshore wind and to support more offshore wind along the southern Atlantic coast,” CEA President David Holt said. “These actions will create energy and jobs in the coming years, and are a great new complement to the offshore oil and gas leasing that has supplied 15% of our oil and gas for decades, which this Administration must resume if it truly means to give Americans financial relief.”
“Unless we tackle our energy policy as a whole to improve reliability and affordability while we continue our environmental progress, more and more Americans will be unable to pay electricity bills and fill up their gasoline tanks.”
