Dec 8, 2020 IPAA Supports Conservation Funding Protection Act; Joins Offshore Trade Groups in Letter to Congressional Leadership
IPAA joined numerous offshore trade associations in supporting the Conservation Funding Protection Act, which aims to provide much needed certainty to help maintain robust domestic energy production in the Gulf of Mexico and shore up conservation programs. The bill was introduced by Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) and co-sponsored by Sens. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.).
Enacting the Conservation Funding Protection Act is an important step in meeting our national goals of economic recovery, supporting national fiscal health, and supporting national security and national environmental objectives. In this letter to House and Senate leadership, the offshore trades called attention to the bill and urged enactment as Congress wraps up negotiations on legislation to meet our nation’s critical needs during this trying time.
