George Allen to Washington: “Get out of the Way and Let Virginia Chart Our Course for Energy Freedom”

Richmond, VA – George Allen today called on Washington to allow exploration and development of our American energy resources off the coast of Virginia.  Allen’s comments came as the House of Representatives was preparing to vote on a bill (H.R. 1230) that would require the Department of Interior to move forward with exploration for and production of oil and natural gas off the outer continental shelf, including Oil and Gas Lease Sale 220 off Virginia’s coast.

“Gasoline prices have doubled while Washington has continued to pursue counterproductive, anti-energy policies; Virginia families and businesses are hurting as the price for gasoline, diesel, food, and many other products are skyrocketing.  The irony is that America is blessed with the most plentiful energy resources on earth.  It defies commonsense to complain about being dependent on foreign oil while refusing to use the resources sitting under our own land and water.

“Here in Virginia we want to take charge of our own energy future, but at every turn Tim Kaine and his allies in Washington have thrown up roadblocks.  It’s time for Washington to get out of the way and let Virginia chart our course for energy freedom.”

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
