The Natural Resources Committee

Much of my work in Congress thus far has been associated with my role on the strategic House Natural Resources Committee. Because Louisiana is distinguished among all other states for its abundant natural resources, the jurisdiction of this committee is of great importance to our Fourth Congressional District.

I am grateful to have been appointed to two Natural Resources Committees: Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations and on the Subcommittee on Water, Power and Oceans.

Because Louisiana is a primary producer of our nation’s oil and natural gas, among other resources, our state will play a key role in meeting America’s new goal of energy dominance. We currently lead the nation in energy production and the advancement of new production technologies can solidify that position. To ensure continued innovation and additional investment, I and my colleagues have worked to cut burdensome and duplicative government red tape, and encourage projects that will generate even more clean, renewable energy and add more jobs in Louisiana.

I look forward to continuing these efforts so we can maximize Louisiana’s many natural resources to promote economic growth and ensure the safety and security of our nation.
