After flip on Florida, Inslee wants Washington waters saved from drilling, too

Trump Expands Offshore Drilling in “Assault” on Biodiversity and Coastal & Indigenous Communities After Interior Exempts Florida from Controversial Offshore Drilling Plan, Harris and 21 US Senators Call on Trump
Ellis Copeland | 13 January, 2018, 07:46

The Trump administration's announcement that as of 2019, it would allow drilling for oil and gas in 47 leased sites off the USA coast - including six sites off California - produced howls of outrage. We will continue advocating for Washington to be removed from the plan. In his written statement, Zinke described Scott as a "straightforward leader that can be trusted".

"For Floridians we are not drilling off the coast of Florida, which clearly the governor has expressed that's important", Zinke said, adding that he knew when he announced the drilling plan last week that it would spark discussion across the country. "I support the governor's position that Florida is unique and its coasts are heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver".

The move left Democratic governors wondering how that logic would impact their states.

Initially the Interior Department moved to allow offshore oil and gas drilling in almost all of the United States' coastal waters, but then announced it has dropped plans to open up the waters off the coast of Florida, following fierce opposition by Florida's Republican Governor Rick Scott. The Trump Administration denies that Florida received a special exemption because President Trump owns property along the state's coastline. One can not help but compare this episode to the tax bill Trump just signed, which strips deductions from taxpayers in blue states in order to fund various GOP ideological priorities.

"Taking #Florida off the table for offshore drilling but not #California violates the legal standard of arbitrary and capricious agency action", Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), an attorney, tweeted. While California has a more diversified economy, it, too, is dependent on coastal tourism in areas adjacent to many lovely and even famous beaches.

Scott said he was pleased at the administration's change of heart.

Critics, including longtime drilling opponent Sen.

Nelson dismissed Zinke's decision Tuesday as a "political stunt".

"I have spent my entire life fighting to keep oil rigs away from our coasts. We hope we can work with you to protect our natural resources, our environment, and the livelihoods of coastal residents so that they remain for future generations".

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Virginia Gov. -elect Ralph Northam also protested the Trump administration's exception for Florida but not other states.
