Landrieu Slams Obama’s Offshore Drilling Plan

Fuel Fix reports that “the Obama administration’s plan to divert some offshore oil and gas revenue away from Gulf Coast states threatens efforts to protect Louisiana wetlands, said former Sen. Mary Landrieu on Monday.”  

“At issue is an Interior Department budget proposal to change the way offshore oil and gas revenue is shared with Gulf States. Although details were limited Monday, the plan would involve siphoning off some of the dollars set to flow to Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas and sending them to ‘to programs that provide broad natural resource, watershed and conservation benefits to the nation.’”  

“Landrieu took aim at the plan in her first statement since the Democrat lost reelection last December.”
