Sangisetty Applauds Lifting Moratorium “South Louisiana is ready to get back to work”

June 22, 2010

HOUMA, La. — Ravi Sangisetty, Democratic candidate for Congress in the Louisiana Third District applauded Federal Judge Martin Feldman for lifting the drilling moratorium in the Gulf today.

“I support Judge Feldman’s decision to put Louisiana communities and Louisiana families first,” Sangisetty said. “This moratorium could cost south Louisiana 20,000 jobs and would destroy our economy.”

Sangisetty said safety on drilling rigs is of utmost importance, and that safety can be ensured in fewer than six months.

“We don’t need to wait for a commission to study something we already know: drilling must be done safely,” he said. “It is irresponsible and a sign of a broken Washington to destroy an economy while career politicians put together a report.”

He added, “South Louisiana is ready to get back to work providing this country with the energy we produce.”
