"One Size Fits All" Is Archaic And Makes Energy Dependent

The United States is the only developed nation in the world that arbitrarily restricts access to its off-shore energy resources.

Congress must establish a commonsense, flexible framework that balances the competing interests of different states and enhances the country's ability to increase energy production at the same time.
