Higgins, Abraham Request COVID-19 Testing for Oil and Gas Workers
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) and Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D., (R-LA) sent a letter to Vice President Mike Pence, requesting assistance in expanding COVID-19 testing for offshore oil and gas workers.
The letter reads, in part, “at a time when Russia, Saudi Arabia, and OPEC are deliberately tanking the oil economy, our energy sector cannot withstand the impact of a highly communicable and dangerous virus such as this. The disruption of this industry is a direct threat to the energy independence and national security of the United States of America. Therefore, I request your support in making available valuable COVID-19 testing units for all vulnerable oil and gas workers.”
