Press Release:

    WASHINGTON, D.C.     Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and a group of Republican senators sent a letter to Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland demanding the Biden Administration end its assault on domestic oil and gas production and continue to sell oil and gas leases on federal land and water. The push comes in response to the U.S. Department of Interior's draft proposal for the Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program, in which the department hinted that it might cancel future lease sales for the next five years.

    "American families are struggling to keep up with rising costs due to inflation, high energy prices, and persistent supply chain issues," wrote the senators. "It is our obligation to do everything within our power to help ease these burdens and remove this uncertainty for both Americans and our allies."

    "One of the most effective ways we can do this is to increase future domestic oil and natural gas production through long-term leasing certainty," continued the senators. "The Department can help domestic energy production and put American energy consumers first."
