Senate Small Business Committee Chairwoman Mary Landrieu (D-La.) slammed the Obama administration’s deepwater drilling moratorium at a hearing on the ban today. It’s not a surprise; Landrieu has been a strong opponent of the moratorium since it began, arguing that it has a severe economic impact on the Gulf region.
But Landrieu made an unusual argument against the moratorium at today’s hearing. She said the moratorium is “radical and unprecedented” because other industries have not been shut down as a result of major disasters. Landrieu cited the Massey Energy mining disaster, a Georgia sugar refinery explosion in 2008, and airline crashes, noting that there was no moratorium on any of those industries following the disasters. The airline industry was up and running four days after 9/11, she said.
