Statement from Governor Sonny Perdue Concerning President Bush’s Lifting of Executive Order on Offshore Drilling

Governor Sonny Perdue issued the following statement today concerning President Bush’s Lifting of Executive Order on offshore drilling:

“With record gas prices straining the budgets of many Georgia families, we cannot afford to take any option off the table. It is imperative that we take a balanced approach of conserving, developing alternative energy technologies and increasing the supply of domestically-produced resources. I want to thank President Bush for his action today and I urge Congress to hear the voices of the American people who are asking for relief from our dependence on foreign oil.”
