WASHINGTON – In response to the U.S. Interior Department’s announcement that it will add even more red tape to the already lengthy permitting process for deepwater oil and gas production, Daniel Kish, Institute for Energy Research senior vice president for policy, released the following statement:

“The Administration continues its assault on US energy production, this time trying to convince us that a shortage of paperwork led to the Gulf spill.  No amount of Government Green Tape would have stopped the spill, and in fact, Americans saw that it actually made cleanup harder.

“The Administration continues to ship our energy security and our jobs overseas, and all this is just another example of their energy extremism.  And with this Administration, extremism in defense of dogma is putting the American economy in a vise.”
