DOg gone the reason for this is a historic fluke going back to the 50's when Perez held so much power. Again its basic fairness. What we are trying to do is find a steady revenue stream that will be able to fund Coastal Restoration. If it doesnt happen the OIl and Gas Industry will be in danger. Thats all thats going on. I dont think this will happen. But it also sends a message to the oil industry that has benifited to uh please help out and to remind them that long tern viability is at stake.
Your cause may be noble. Her extortion effort is not.
Louisiana already gets some federal royalties, which is more than they should be entitled to under any concept of property law.
The preferred solution is to persuade Congress to spend money if that will help.
To threaten to block oil and gas lease sales and future pipeline access is childish, legally wrong, and morally apprehensible.
