Osborne Crosby has returned to Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis' (photo right) office as counsel, leaving his counsel position at the American Petroleum Institute (API). Crosby worked as a law clerk in Davis' office from August 2013 until the end of the year, before leaving for API.
Davis is on record as supporting a reduction in EPA regulation and the construction of the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline, which will bring jobs to downstate Illinois.
According to filings, Crosby lobbied energy issues on API's behalf during the first and second quarters of this year. He holds a JD from Samford University's Cumberland School of Law and an LLM in energy, environment and natural resources law from George Washington University.
