A Message from our

Executive Director: 


President Trump has declared this week as “Energy Week” to promote America’s path to energy dominance. In South Louisiana, every week is “energy week” as many of our citizens go off to work each and every day to help produce the energy to fuel America. 


It just so happens that in South Louisiana this week, Terrebonne Parish is also hosting "Coastal Day" where citizens can learn more about coastal restoration and protection projects. You see, in south Louisiana, our citizens are proud to produce the energy to fuel America and we also step up and do what we have to do to protect our fragile coastline. The citizens of Terrebonne and Lafourche Parish have passed tax propositions to pay for much needed levee protection projects. Their motto is, “For Us, By Us, ALL IN.” No where else in America do we better understand the balance between producing American Energy and protecting America’s Wetlands.

Trump to call for U.S. 'dominance' in global energy production via World Oil 

Donald Trump will tout surging U.S. exports of oil and natural gas during a week of events aimed at highlighting the country’s growing energy dominance. 

The president also plans to emphasize that after decades of relying on foreign energy supplies, the U.S. is on the brink of becoming a net exporter of oil, gas, coal and other energy resources.

“Trump is reorienting our national rhetoric toward ‘dominance,’” said Kevin Book, analyst with ClearView Energy Partners LLC. “Captives crave independence; competitors strive to dominate. It’s a shift from getting by to getting ahead.”

U.S. Department of Interior Requests Comments on Regulatory Reform
You can help to r educe unnecessary regulatory burdens

The Department of Interior is requesting comments on its new initiative to reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens.  This initiative implements President Trump's executive order, “Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda.” Interior is seeking input from the public, and specifically from stakeholders significantly affected by Federal regulations, on what Interior regulations may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification because they:


  • Eliminate jobs or inhibit job creation; 
  • Are outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective;
  • Impose costs that exceed benefits; 
  • Create regulatory inconsistency; 
  • Rely on unavailable or "insufficiently transparent" data; or
  • Are based on outdated executive orders.


You may comment here. Each Interior agency has its own docket for comments. Interior will review comments on an ongoing basis. No deadline for the receipt of comments has been established at this time.
