A new plan by the Interior Department that critics say would lock up more than 85 percent of America’s offshore areas to energy production is drawing negative reviews from congressional Republicans.
The restrictive five-year proposal only allows for 15 new offshore leases in the Gulf region and Alaska, but blocks new drilling on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, including the much sought after Virginia and South Carolina region.
Screw these bastards.
Better see some action from the new Republican Congress and President to reign these asshats in.
