In response to a request from Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Congressional Budget Office released a report August 9 finding that almost $150 billion could be raised over ten years from royalties, rents, and bonus payments received from opening most federally owned lands to oil and gas drilling. About $93.3 billion could be raised from offshore lease royalties and rents from 2012 through 2022, with another $21.8 billion from bonus payments.
