House Resources Chairman Pombo outlines his plans on energy, fisheries

High oil and gas prices continue to resonate on Capitol Hill as both the House and Senate work on legislative solutions. During today's OnPoint, House Resources Committee Chairman Richard Pombo (R-Calif.) talks about his committee's agenda in the coming months, including a new push for offshore oil and gas exploration, renewable energy and opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Plus, Pombo discusses his effort to reauthorize federal fishing laws under the Magnuson-Stevens Act and defends his bill against criticism that it could delay the recovery of depleted fisheries.
