ABSTRACT
The article reports on the optimism of negotiators for the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate on reaching a compromise on offshore energy development. A bipartisan group of senators and representatives was meeting in an effort to reach a compromise between widely differing bills passed by the House and Senate to open more offshore areas to oil and gas drilling. The Senate offshore energy bill, passed in August, would open a small portion of the eastern U.S. Gulf region to expanded oil and gas drilling.
