Congressman Kevin Brady took part in the speeches on the House floor Thursday blasting the ban on offshore drilling rigs in the gulg. Brady Brady is emphasizing the national chain of vendors that supply the offshore drilling industry — with pipe coming from Rust Belt steelworkers, engines coming from Illinois and radiators coming from Minnesota. That entire supply chain is threatened by the drilling ban, Brady said.
He also said that companies leasing floating rigs are certain to move the vessels to foreign waters as has already happened to two rigs. The cost of moving them back is prohibitive.
"What small business can hope to survive without six months of their revenue?" Brady questioned. "Here we have a White House policy that puts at risk 150,000 good-paying American jobs or more that will impact every state in the nation."
