The Difference is Clear

When it comes to the issue of offshore drilling, the difference between Gerry Connolly and Keith Fimian could not be more clear. In the wake of the Gulf coast disaster, Keith Fimian still supports lax regulations on oil companies to drill off of our coasts. Keith Fimian believes in the Sarah Palin doctrine of “Drill, Baby, Drill” and “Drill here, Drill now.” He thinks that Big Oil should be allowed to self-regulate. His reckless position on the issue of offshore drilling has not changed even after the catastrophe in the Gulf. 

On June 10th, Gerry Connolly introduced legislation that will require oil companies who drill offshore to go through a meaningful environmental impact study. The bill will close the loophole that allowed BP to build the Deepwater Horizon rig with no regard towards the potential environmental impact. The calamity in the Gulf could have been prevented if the proper precautions were in place. Keith Fimian opposes holding oil companies responsible, opposes this legislation, and if he were in Congress he would do everything he could to kill it. Click here to watch the video and learn more.
