"By tapping American ingenuity
and working with free market
forces, the technological and
economic benefits of a new,
clean and sustainable energy
policy are limitless." - Wayne
protects our national treasures from
destructive oil drilling.
Rep. Gilchrest places a high priority
on clean and sustainable energy policies
while protecting our greatest treasures
from the destruction caused
by unnecessary oil drilling.
Rep. Gilchrest fought for Bristol
Bay! Known as one of the most productive
ecosystems on the planet (providing
40% of our nation's annual seafood
catch), Bristol Bay has been under
assault by the Bush Administration,
who threatened to lift the presidential
prohibition on oil and gas drilling.
Gilchrest co-sponsored the Bristol
Bay Protection Act (HR1957),
which would permanently prohibit oil
and gas leasing in Bristol Bay (Despite
this difference of opinion, Bush has
endorsed Gilchrest as the Republican
candidate for MD).
Rep. Gilchrest protects
our coastlines from oil drilling
- When Rep. Richard Pombo tried
to push through a bill that would open America's
coastlines to new oil and gas development,
Rep. Gilchrest stood firm against
this insidious bill (Remember how
you helped in that effort, too?
Over 2500 of you signed our petition
to oppose the bill, and over 1,000
of you contacted your Representative.
Rep. Gilchrest Co-sponsored
HR 39, the Arctic Wilderness Act
- this act permanently protects
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
from drilling, by designating it
as a national wilderness area. Read
Gilchrest's position on oil
drilling in the Arctic.
