House Votes to Silence Public Opposition to Oil and Gas Lease Sales

WASHINGTON - The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that will shield offshore oil and gas lease sales from public scrutiny. House Resolution 5577: Innovation in Offshore Leasing Act, sponsored by Representatives Garret Graves (R-La.) and Alan Lowenthal (D-Ca.) would require the Bureau of Ocean Management to conduct an Internet-based lease sale for oil and gas deposits in the Gulf of Mexico. An online lease system will marginalize public input and comes amid rising public pressure from the Keep It in the Ground movement to end new oil and gas leasing on public lands and oceans.

Seems like now they don`t even care enough to pretend that we,the people,matter at all.
Is this what is called the end game?
