Bipartisan "More Energy More Jobs Act" Bolsters Gulf of Mexico Energy, Economic and Environmental Outlook
Washington, D.C. – National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) President Erik Milito issued the following statement after Congressmen Nathaniel Moran (R-TX) and Henry Cuellar (D-TX) introduced the bipartisan More Energy More Jobs Act of 2023:
“NOIA thanks Congressman Moran and Congressman Cuellar for helping set a tone of bipartisan energy solutions in the new Congress. The U.S. Gulf of Mexico is a source of affordable, reliable, and environmentally responsible energy, and its role as a premier energy region is critical to our nation’s wellbeing. Codifying an annual minimum of two Gulf lease sales and tightening key permitting timelines would be a significant step toward bolstering energy security for Americans at home and for our allies abroad. Supporting Gulf of Mexico energy production is in our national interest and should always be a bipartisan priority.”
The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) represents and advances a dynamic and growing offshore energy industry, providing solutions that support communities and protect our workers, the public and our environment.
