SB 76 (ACR) - Domestic Energy Jobs Act

This bill seeks to establish a more streamlined permitting process for on-shore energy exploration, assigns royalty and revenue from future energy exploration activities to specific purposes, and urges the Governor to negotiate a pact with Virginia and South Carolina to develop a unified strategy for expanding on- and off-shore energy sources. Civitas believes the conservative position is to reduce government obstruction to access to safe, affordable energy sources that will create thousands of jobs.
