• U.S. Chamber Key Vote Letter on Offshore and Alaska Oil and Gas Production Legislation

September 11, 2019

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce strongly opposes H.R. 205, the “Protecting and Securing Florida’s Coastline Act of 2019,” and H.R. 1941, the “Coastal and Marine Economies Protection Act,” which would permanently ban energy leasing in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic and Pacific planning areas respectively. The Chamber also opposes H.R. 1146, the “Arctic Cultural and Coastal Plain Protection Act,” which would prohibit energy development in the 1002 area of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). The Chamber will consider including votes on these bills in our annual How They Voted scorecard.
