GOP wants drilling off Virginia's coast
"The bills, co-sponsored by Reps. Rob Wittman, R-Westmoreland, and Scott Rigell, R-Virginia Beach, would end a moratorium put in place after last year's Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
One bill would require the Department of the Interior to hold lease sales for Virginia within one year of the bill becoming law."

"Here we go again. House Republicans are making a promise to American families they simply can't deliver. They're telling the public that new offshore drilling will bring them relief from $4 per gallon gasoline. Here's the harsh reality: We cannot drill our way out of this problem. We don't have the oil. And we're never going to have it."
