Letter: Walz missed mark on energy act vote

Why did Congressman Tim Walz vote against energy development off the continental shelf of the United States? H.R. 3089, the "No More Excuses Energy Act of 2007," failed to pass on a vote of 226 to 183.

If China can drill for oil near the continental shelf of Florida, why can't our country allow it? Seventeen billion barrels of oil would certainly come in handy right now while we continue to research and develop alternative sources of energy.
