Salazar Testimony to U.S. Senate

March 17, 2009 –

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar Tuesday defended the Obama administration’s stance on developing energy on federal lands and waters at his first appearance before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee since becoming the head of the department.

Salazar responded to Energy and Natural Resources ranking member Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and other critics who have accused the administration for trying to roll back Bush administration attempts to expand domestic oil and natural gas production.

“The fact is that much of what we are still doing is continuing to develop oil and gas both onshore and offshore,” Salazar said.
