Troy Messenger: U.S. Rep. Martha Roby on Pledge and Strong on Energy Reform

August 18, 2011

Part of a story in the Troy Messenger:

[Rep.] Roby’s Congressional record shows that she voted “yes” on opening the Outer Continental Shelf to oil drilling, which makes available for leasing, in the 2012-2017 five-year oil and gas leasing program, Outer Continental Shelf areas that are estimated to contain more than 2.5 billion barrels of oil.

Roby also voted yes on barring the EPA from regulating greenhouse gases and signed the No Climate Tax Pledge to oppose any legislation relating to climate change that includes a net increase in government revenue.
