“On October 1, the current prohibitions on energy leasing on most of the Outer Continental Shelf and on oil shale leasing on federal lands will expire – unless the Democrat controlled Congress proactively acts to extend them. Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) and Rep. John Shadegg (R-AZ) are gathering signatures on a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi on behalf of the millions of Americans currently feeling pain at the gas pump and seeking to increase production of American energy. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) is leading the effort in the Senate. To date, 147 House Republicans have signed the letter, as have 39 Republicans in the Senate. They’ve also secured 147 signatures urging President Bush to veto pro-active attempts by the Democrat controlled Congress to enact a new OCS ban of energy exploration.”
