This thing ain’t over ’til it’s over and while the House jumped the track last week in not passing a budget bill with ANWR and OCS language, if we’ve learned nothing else in this town it’s that it’s never over. We live to fight another day. it’s incredible that we made it this far, and we will persevere until new sources of energy are unleashed in this country to help our manufacturers compete.
On Tuesday, NAM President John Engler travels to St. Louis to speak at the mammoth Rockwell Automation Fair 2005. He will give a major energy address there to a crowd of press and exhibitors, laying out our plan of action on energy. The event will be webcast live at this link starting at 9 a.m. EST Tuesday morning.
And, if you’ve not already done so (hundreds of you have, we know), click here to write to your Member of Congress and urge them to open up these domestic areas — over which they have total control — to exploration, and ease the crushing costs of energy. Just think: 420 trillion cubic feet of natural gas alone in the Outer Continental Shelf, 85% of it subject to a federal moratorium. It’s time.
