Voice your support to Federal Regulators
The time is now to support American energy production. The Department of Interior has proposed a new Five-Year plan that will responsibly develop and expand our offshore oil and gas resources by increasing access to over 90% of the total outer continental shelf areas. This is the biggest and boldest plan in over thirty years; however, we need you to COMMENT TODAY in support of increasing American Energy.

This is a tremendous opportunity to create MORE American JOBS, to BOOST our local economies, to generate MORE federal revenues, and to DEDICATE MORE FUNDING to Louisiana’s coastal protection projects through the offshore revenue sharing program.  
How to Write a Letter or Submit Comments:
Tell the Government why the oil and gas industry is important to you. You may consider including some of our facts in your letter.  

If you would like assistance we can help. Send us an email at lori@gestnews.org and we will walk you through the process…

Comments are DUE by March 9
