Drilling can continue, but Landrieu still blocking Lew nomination
Tuesday - 10/12/2010, 4:05pm EDT
The six-month drilling moratorium, which started in May, would directly impact jobs in her state, Landrieu argued.
In a release Tuesday, the senator said the decision to allow drilling to continue was "a good start."
"This means that the administration must continue to accelerate the granting of permits in shallow and deep water, and provide greater certainty about the rules and regulations industry must meet," Landrieu said in the release.
Landrieu said she will spend the weeks before Congress reconvenes for the lame duck session to "evaluate if today's lifting of the moratorium is actually putting people back to work."
