Support Mary Landrieu's FAIR Act
Since the 1920's, interior states like Wyoming and New Mexico that produce energy on federal land have been allowed by federal law to keep 50 percent of the revenues generated from energy production on those lands.
Meanwhile, coastal states like Louisiana and Mississippi have generated $211 billion from energy production during the last half century for the federal treasury -- but have received virtually nothing back.
I believe we can fix this inequity, which is why I have introduced, with Senator Lisa Murkowski, the FAIR Act. To pass this bill, we need to show that this is an issue that is important to many places in the United States, including the Gulf Coast.
