GOP Senators who received large oil contributions call for cut in oil royalties

Recently a dozen Senators sent a letter to President Trump’s administration asking to lower already outdated and inadequate royalty rates for domestic oil leaseholders. However, new research shows that these Senators have raked in over $14 million in oil and gas donations over their political careers. Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, for example, has taken a total of $4,067,906 from the O&G industry.

I think it should be standard to sell any investments in order to hold office. Otherwise you are incentivized to prioritize the market.

sounds like we should have invested in alternative energy decades ago when it was clear that we should. this is just one more proof that fossil fuels cannot provide secure and stable energy. they are a liability, not an advantage.
