United States Sens. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) and Mary Landrieu (D-LA) introduced the Lease Extension and Secure Energy Act (LEASE Act) yesterday. The measure would extend by one year oil and natural gas leases in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico that were not producing as of April 30, 2010, or were suspended from production by the moratorium imposed last year by the U.S. Department of Interior.
