WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement on President Trump’s executive action on offshore drilling:

“I welcome this action that will open up Arctic waters for drilling offshore and review previously restricted waters. The United States has been blessed with abundant oil and natural gas reserves. State governments have been eager to explore offshore, but the Obama administration blocked them from allowing it. Harnessing our nation’s energy resources creates jobs and gives us leverage on the foreign stage. President Trump gets this. This action caps a productive 100 days of the president keeping his commitment to develop our nation’s vast energy potential.”
