VOCES' Reaction to Trump Administration Pause on Offshore Drilling Plans
April 26, 2019
According to media reports, the Trump administration is postponing plans for federal offshore oil and gas leasing. The delay is the result of a recent federal court ruling and months of opposition from environmental groups and coastal communities that overwhelmingly oppose President Trump’s attempt to open nearly every coastline to drilling.
The following is a statement from VOCES:
“While we are encouraged by this delay, we will remain steadfastly vigilant until this plan is completed stamped out.”
