Our Work - Energy and Natural ResourcesTweet
The federal government is the steward of public lands, and it is under constant pressure from industries to allow them to extract natural resources from this land for little return to the taxpayers. The result has been a veritable fire sale on the nation’s oil, natural gas, and other resources. POGO works to make the federal government more accountable to the U.S. taxpayer. Furthermore, the federal regulator of the nation’s nuclear power facilities has often been too cozy with the industry it oversees. POGO has successfully made practical recommendations to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to increase security at these facilities.
