St. Tammany West Chamber Board Members have communicated the need to lift the drilling moratorium on coastal drilling via local, state and federal legislatures and have met with senior members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington DC to discuss energy issues.  We have also had discussions with U.S. Senators and Congressman regarding the EPA interpreting law and creating new restrictions in the permitting process.  St. Tammany West Chamber has openly supported other Louisiana chambers in their efforts to get the same message out.
