“When Gulf communities were devastated by the impact of the BP oil spill, Sen. Landrieu led the bipartisan, bicameral effort to pass the RESTORE the Gulf Coast Act. Her leadership in that fight was tenacious, and demonstrated a keen awareness of both environmental risks and opportunities for breaking through the partisan gridlock. We look forward to continued work with the Senator as she takes the helm of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.”
