Sanford attending offshore energy tour in Gulf

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Congressman Mark Sanford is visiting the Gulf of Mexico to learn more about offshore energy development.

Sanford is joining other members of Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday for a tour of an offshore oil rig and to meet with representatives of the energy industry.

Sanford says the tour will provide members a better understanding of offshore energy development.

The 1st District Republican says that offshore energy plays a role in the nation's energy future. He says that learning more is important given the debate over developing energy resources off the Eastern Seaboard.
