Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Made in America: Can the Jones Act and US energy exports coexist peacefully?

October 16, 2017 (18:50 mins)



Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon

The 100-year-old Jones Act got a lot of attention after a brutal hurricane season, but could its role within the US energy industry change as crude oil and LNG exports increase?

Senior oil editors Meghan Gordon and Brian Scheid hear from US Representative John Garamendi, Democrat-California, about the Jones Act's function today and the Trump administration's waiver for Puerto Rico. Garamendi, the top Democrat on the House subcommittee on Coast Guard and Marine Transportation, also discusses ongoing efforts to weaken the Jones Act.

See excerpts of the conversation with Garamendi in this story.
