USA: Statement from Shallow Water Energy Security Coalition on Jacob Lew Nomination


Jim Noe, Executive Director of the Shallow Water Energy Security Coalition, issued the following statement on Senator Mary Landrieu’s decision to lift her hold on the nomination of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Jacob Lew.

“We applaud Senator Landrieu for her steadfast support. Her forthright action certainly got the attention of the White House and ensured that our voices were heard. Senator Landrieu has been a champion for domestic energy production, and we will continue to work with her as part of a bipartisan coalition to keep jobs in the Gulf South. Clearly, further challenges lie ahead. The moratorium will not end until drilling begins again. We need permit approvals to return to normal levels for this de facto drilling moratorium to come to an end.”
