Gov. Ritter Statement on Interior Dept Investigation

Big Oil & The GOP: screwing us literally & figuratively- for the Grateful Web

Gov. Bill Ritter (Colorado) issued the following statement today in response to the federal investigation into allegations of gross misconduct by Interior Department and oil industry employees:

 

"This is obviously an extremely serious revelation. It warrants a thorough investigation, and if appropriate, the prosecution of anyone who has broken the law.

 

"The investigation also must closely examine how much this type of corruption has cost American – and Colorado – taxpayers. The oil-and-gas industry already benefits from taxpayer-funded subsidies, so the question is: how much has this scandal cost us in lost revenue?

 

"This is exactly why we need a federal government that partners with states like Colorado to craft a responsible energy policy for the future, not a federal government mired in corruption."
