Public Support is Strong


Notwithstanding predictable and historic opposition by vocal individuals and groups, Americans - including Floridians - have overwhelmingly come to support exploration and production as a way to achieve energy independence. Critics aren't likely to have a contrasting, new revenue source that doesn't involve new taxes.

STATEMENT BY: TONY DOMENECH, FLA ENERGY FORUM MEMBER AND FORMER GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSIONER

Regarding Proposed Legislation to Lift Florida's Ban on Drilling Off State Waters


"Our country needs a comprehensive energy plan that includes more domestic production of oil and natural gas. For too long have leaders in Washington, D.C., dragged their feet on this important issue. I thank Rep. Cannon for opening the door to pragmatic policies that will enable the state to consider tapping into the oil resources available right off our own shores. As a Floridian and an American, I am adamant about the need to change the conversation from whether we should drill to where and how we do it responsibly. We will never reach energy independence or realize the economic benefits of increased domestic production unless this shift in conversation occurs. I hope the members of our Legislature will have the foresight to see this and will support Rep. Cannon's wise proposal."
