Permitting directive sets national example of right approach to energy

HOUSTON  – Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), the leading energy and environmental advocate for families and businesses, issued the following statement after Louisiana Gov. Jeff Landry issued two executive orders designed to make energy production and permitting less burdensome:

“In a world where anti-business activists make it their mission to vilify America’s world-leading energy production and environmental standards, the Louisiana executive orders are a return to the right path of keeping energy affordable, reliable and abundant for Americans,” CEA Vice President Kaitlin Hammons said.

“CEA applauds Gov. Landry for setting a good example of energy policies that work for people by sending the right signals for investment into energy and making permitting less burdensome, but no less environmentally sound,” Hammons said. “This is the right path to help American families and small businesses prosper from our nation’s natural resources, rather than suffer from the high prices that result from restricting their production, as we have seen for several years now.”
