Congressman Jerry Carl’s Response to Biden’s Oil and Gas Leasing Moratorium

February 1, 2021

Washington, D.C. – Today Congressman Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) issued the following statement regarding President Biden’s oil and gas leasing moratorium.

“With the stroke of a pen, President Biden’s latest action will destroy 24,000 Alabama jobs over the next four years. Instead of working with the private sector to move forward toward more free-market innovations and clean-energy solutions, President Biden is declaring war on the oil and gas industry, destroying jobs and threatening America’s energy independence. The President’s agenda is harmful to Alabama, and I will continue fighting his job-killing policies.”

Congressman Carl’s office can be reached at 202-225-4931.
