Louisiana Chambers Oppose Drilling Moratorium
Working in coordination with Gov. Bobby Jindal and local elected leaders, dozens of chambers in Louisiana have formed the Gulf Economic Survival Team (GEST). Their primary goal is to urge the Obama Administration to rescind the six month moratorium on offshore drilling at depths greater than 500 feet. They contend that the drilling moratorium will cost the region thousands of jobs and impact the economy for years to come.

Chambers in Louisiana, spearheaded by Drake Pothier from the Houma-Terrebonne Chamber, have joined in opposition to the drilling moratorium because they know it spells economic disaster for their region. They request support from chamber colleagues across the country to oppose the drilling moratorium. Find information at the links below:
