Democrats Duck Vote on Offshore Energy

Congressman John Peterson says it best, "I think they were afraid they might lose the vote."

In my last post, I said that Rep. John Peterson (R-PA) would offer his amendment to allow deepwater energy exploration at a full Appropriations Committee markup on Wednesday.  This amendment failed on a party line vote in subcommittee.

Well, instead of taking action on it and risking another vote on Peterson’s amendment, Democrats postponed considering the Interior Appropriations measure altogether. If enacted, the amendment would allow increased exploration in deep ocean energy zones far off the Pacific and Atlantic coasts and the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

Another day, another bold display of leadership from the Democrats on energy.

Here is a clip from Rep. Peterson on Fox News talking about what happened Wednesday on his amendment.
