WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today spoke on the senate floor about his amendment to the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, which would unleash U.S. energy production by mandating oil and gas leases in the Gulf of Mexico.
Kennedy made the following statement during his remarks:
“On March 31 of this year, my two friends Senator Joe Manchin and Senator Mark Kelly wrote to President Joe Biden, and I quote, ‘We are writing to urge you to develop and implement a new Five-Year Program for oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico without delay’—my amendment would fulfill that request and make it a congressional directive.”
