Deputy Assistant Interior Secretary for Budget, Finance, Performance, and Acquisition Pamela Haze announced at a July 23 Senate Energy and Natural Resources hearing that the administration cannot support S. 1273, Fixing America’s Inequities with Revenues (FAIR) Act of 2013, because funding offsets have not been identified and because it believes Congress has already addressed this issue through the Submerged Lands Act and amendments to the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act. Ranking Member Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), sponsors of the bill which would increase revenue sharing to coastal states for offshore energy projects, said they are committed to finding acceptable offsets.
