A former small business owner supporting the oil and gas industry and former business attorney helping job creators in South Louisiana, Congressman Jeff Landry was elected in November 2010 by the voters of the Coast to represent them in Congress.

Congressman Landry serves as:

  • Vice-Chairman of the Transportation & Infrastructure’s Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation

  • A member of the U.S. House Small Business Committee

  • A member of the U.S. House Natural Resources Committee

Representing a region where nearly one in three jobs are related to the oil and gas industry, Congressman Landry has been a very vocal opponent to the federal moratoria on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. He has been featured on Fox News as the House’s leading proponent of domestic energy exploration.

Congressman Landry is an ardent supporter of the domestic maritime industry. His district produces the most jobs, economic output, and labor compensation in the domestic maritime industry throughout the country and is home to 8 ports, including the largest tonnage port in the Western Hemisphere – The Port of South Louisiana – and the backbone of the Gulf of Mexico’s energy production – Port Fourchon.

Although only been in office for five months, Congressman Landry has tackled head on reforming the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund, dredging our nation’s waterways, and improving the Corps of Engineers.

Congressman Landry holds a Juris Doctor of Law degree from Loyola University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental and Sustainable Resources with a minor degree in Biology from the University of Southwestern Louisiana.

Congressman Landry and his wife Sharon are raising their son in New Iberia.
