Bipartisan "More Energy More Jobs Act" Protects Gulf of Mexico Energy, Economic & Environmental Progress

Washington, D.C. – National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) President Erik Milito issued the following statement after Representatives Kevin Brady (R-TX) and Henry Cuellar (D-TX) introduced the bipartisan More Energy More Jobs Act of 2021

“Gulf of Mexico oil and gas production benefits every American and supporting it should not be a partisan issue. Our industry delivers good paying and accessible jobs in every state, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and funding for conservation, outdoor and recreational programs, including building or improving parks in urban, underprivileged communities. Supporting the women and men of the Gulf of Mexico is a no-brainer.

“NOIA thanks Representatives Brady and Cuellar for standing up for a fundamental reality and taking the initiative to ensure that the Gulf of Mexico can remain a lasting source of energy, economic, and environmental opportunity.”
