ABSTRACT
The article examines the result of the House vote to reinstate language in an appropriations bill to maintain a 25-year-old ban on development of natural gas and oil reserves in most U.S. outer continental shelf regions. Legislators see the need to have more access to existing energy resources as pricing pressure continues to mount on oil and gas. Jack Gerard, president of the American Chemistry Council, said the narrow defeat in the House represents a seismic shift in congressional sentiment toward the natural gas crisis.
