The Gulf Coast Can't Afford a Federal Ban on Oil & Natural Gas Leasing!

President Joe Biden’s ban on new federal natural gas and oil leasing will increase America’s reliance on foreign energy from countries with lower environmental standards, gradually strangle an important revenue stream for state education programs and federal conservation efforts, and have a detrimental impact on a key driver of U.S. emissions reductions.

What’s at stake? Jobs. The strength of our economic recovery. Funding for schools. Key conservation projects. Progress on climate change and environmental goals.

Join the Gulf Economic Survival Team (GEST) in speaking up for energy jobs and domestic energy production.
