Secretary Salazar will discuss President Obama’s plan for America’s energy security and the role the Department of the Interior is playing in this national strategy.
In addition to undertaking a major overhaul of the nation’s offshore oil and gas regulatory system, Salazar has spurred the development of clean energy alternatives, including the first commercial scale solar energy projects on public lands in the West and launching historic offshore wind turbine development off the Atlantic Coast.
As part of the effort to promote safe development of offshore oil and gas resources, Interior is conducting an intensive recruitment campaign to hire engineering and science graduates to join the expanded offshore oil and gas regulatory program to strengthen inspections, permitting and enforcement.
