Obama Budget Repeals $30 Billion in Oil and Gas Giveaways

Posted Mar. 11, 2009 / Posted by: NBerning

President Obama’s first budget did away with over $30 billion in giveaways to oil and gas companies. Friends of the Earth has been working for years to end these give aways to multi-national companies that are earning record profits.  Congress should follow the President's lead and act immediately to return this money to taxpayers.
