It's time coastal states were treated fairly.
Currently, interior states keep 50 percent of oil, gas and coal production revenues they produce, while Louisiana—a coastal state—ends up with virtually nothing.
There is a FAIRer way to act, watch how:
The Fixing America's Inequities with Revenues (FAIR) Act is the solution to this unfair situation. The bill will allow coastal states to keep 37.5 percent of offshore revenue, and 50 percent of oil, gas or wind revenue produced onshore.
Watch how the FAIR Act works in this new animated video.
Additionally, it builds upon GOMESA, which established revenue sharing for energy-producing states in the Gulf, by gradually eliminating the arbitrary $500-million cap and accelerating payments to coastal states.
The revenues kept in Louisiana will help us rebulid our eroding coast, protect our coastal communities from storms, create jobs and preserve our unique and treasured culture.
Help spread the word about this bill to ensure we get a FAIR share of the revenue we produce in Louisiana.
All the best,
