David Jolly on Energy & Oil

 

 


I support offshore drilling, but not off Florida's coasts

David Jolly said, "I have never lobbied for offshore oil drilling," refuting an audience member question. Jolly's lobbyist past is a major target for his opponents. So has Jolly lobbied for expanded oil exploration?

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee declared, "In 2011 Jolly lobbied on behalf of Free Enterprise Nation," which supported the Roadmap for America's Energy Future, introduced as H.R.909 by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) on March 3, 2011. The Roadmap "would open the Outer Continental Shelf to offshore drilling." Offshore drilling is not allowed off Florida shores, for the most part [despite H.R.909]. Jolly himself wrote an April 2011 Free Enterprise Nation blog post in favor of the Nunes bill.

Jolly responded to the DCCC's attack by saying the "comprehensive energy independence blueprint could have possibly expanded drilling in the Gulf, but I did not lobby on its behalf." He added he did support offshore drilling outside the 230-mile moratorium area.
