In May 2011, the OCS Governors Coalition came together with a simple mission:
- Improve communication between federal and state officials on OCS issues.
- Improve understanding of potential energy resources and opportunities adjacent to the various coastal states.
- Improve understanding of the impact those energy resources could have on local, state and federal revenues.
- Improved management and stewardship of coastal resources related to coastal and ocean activities.
As a unified force, the Governors work with an amplified voice to advance this mission and to influence a sensible path forward for the development of America’s offshore energy resources.
