Senate: Vote YES on H.R. 1941 and H.R. 205
Block Expanded Offshore Drilling
The US Senate has the opportunity to pass legislation that will effectively block the Trump administration's dangerous offshore drilling plan in nearly ALL US waters, but we need your help!
The U.S. House of Representatives recently voted to permanently ban offshore drilling in the Pacific, Atlantic, and eastern Gulf of Mexico. If passed, this legislation will be an incredible victory for marine wildlife and ocean ecosystems. Offshore drilling causes habitat destruction, ocean acidification, and oil spills, resulting in immense loss of wildlife and damage to coastal communities.
H.R. 1941, the "Coastal and Marine Economies Protection Act of 2019," would permanently block offshore oil and gas leasing in the Atlantic Ocean, Straits of Florida and the Pacific Ocean. H.R. 205 would amend the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act of 2006 to permanently block offshore oil and gas leasing off the Gulf Coast of Florida.
Please, urge your Senators to to vote YES on H.R. 205 and H.R. 1941, and enact a permanent ban on offshore drilling in nearly all U.S. waters.
Thank you for taking action.
