Washington, D.C.Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), the leading energy and environmental advocate for families and businesses, applauded the selection of Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves as the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Governors Coalition chair and vice chair, respectively. Edwards and Reeves were elected as the Coalition’s new leadership during the OCS Governors Coalition Annual Meeting to serve two-year terms. Edwards will replace Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, outgoing chair of the group and Reeves will replace Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy as vice chair.

“We appreciate Gov. Edwards’ leadership in Louisiana and applaud the Coalition for selecting Governors Edwards and Reeves for these important roles during a critical time for the nation to focus on safely advancing offshore energy issues. I am excited to work together with Governors Edwards and Reeves to help support America’s environmentally sustainable energy future – built with the power of traditional and renewable offshore energy resources to create the best mix for families and businesses, our environment and our economy,” said CEA President David Holt.

Holt added: “Thank you to Governors Ivey and Dunleavy on their successful tenures and accomplishments. CEA stands ready to work together with the Coalition and President Biden’s Administration to ensure American families and businesses have access to reliable, affordable and environmentally sound resources.”
