WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins, R-LA, issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s executive order today to expand offshore drilling and oil and gas exploration.

“It’s refreshing to have a President who understands that the federal government should be a partner -not a predator- of the oil and gas industry. No state has been more seriously injured by the targeted political attack against the petrochemical industry than Louisiana. This is a great step toward rolling back federal overreach and breathing new life into the American oil and gas industry.”
