Our Position:

We support this bill.

Dear Senator Vitter and Representative Bishop,

On behalf of more than 1.7 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I applaud you for introducing the Three-D, Domestic Jobs, Domestic Energy, and Deficit Reduction Act of 2011, S. 706 and H.R. 1287. Our economy is still recovering, and this bill will give American companies the much-needed opportunity to create jobs and boost our economy.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and the rest of the Obama administration have burdened energy companies and directly blocked growth with obstructionist judicial actions. Salazar was even held in contempt of court for his actions blocking permits in the Gulf of Mexico. This administration has crippled one of the nation’s most important industries, resulting in thousands of lost jobs, ballooning gas prices, and a prolonged dependence on foreign oil. The administration must not be allowed to stand in the way of our economic recovery.
