Please tell Congress to support the No New Drilling Act. House Bill 261 would prohibit new offshore drilling in our ocean waters, including oil & gas exploration, development, and production. Head to action.surfrider.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=3114 to help make your voice heard!
Offshore drilling is an inherently risky activity that directly threatens the health our coastlines. The Presidential Oil Spill Commission recently reported that the BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexcio was not a freak accident, but rather a product of systemic failure of both industry and government
Our nation’s coasts provide billions of dollars in economic revenue through recreation, tourism, and healthy seafood. We must protect these benefits through reinstating the federal moratorium on new offshore drilling.
Please make your voice heard and tell your Representative that you support protecting our coasts from oil and gas development!
