Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Garret Graves (South Louisiana) released the following statement:

I told you so. Today's ruling by Louisiana's U.S. District Court Judge affirmed what we knew would happen the moment the pen hit the paper on the moratoriums. Interior’s arbitrary decisions have had grave consequences and we thank the judge for realizing these impacts. The Administration’s decision to cancel America's energy leasing will result in higher gas prices and less funding for hurricane protection, flood control and coastal restoration.”
