After Florida Gets Offshore Drilling Exemption, Other States Ask For The Same

Sen. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, took to Twitter to rhetorically ask why Florida was treated differently than Virginia in Trump'soffshore drilling decision. Here's NPR's Greg Allen.
Zinke announced last week that the National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program for 2019-2024, which would flip the current status of being 94 percent off-limits to more than 90 percent available for drilling, would be "the right balance to protect our coasts and people while still powering America and achieving American energy dominance".
"I am opposed to off shore drilling of South Carolina's shore". If the governor of a coastal state is opposed to such drilling out of concern that an oil spill would inflict serious harm to the state's tourism industry, the federal government is willing to back down. Both met at the Tallahassee International Airport on Tuesday. "As a result of discussion with Governor [Scott] and his leadership, I am removing Florida from consideration for any new oil and gas platforms".
We have long advocated for increased drilling off the country's coasts, as long as it is smartly regulated.
Regulations allow for multiple uses of areas - for wind, oil or gas production, or even sand and gravel mining.
"Dear Secretary Zinke, California like Florida, has hundreds of miles of attractive coastline and a governor who wants to keep it that way". He's done really the opposite.
On Jan. 4, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke released the Trump Administration's long-awaited offshore drilling proposal.
Well, we hope we can perish that thought.
ALLEN: For conspiracy theorists, the fact that Scott had lunch with Trump at Mar-a-Lago just days before the offshore drilling plan was announced just thickens the plot.
However, it's doubtful if ME - with only two electors - holds the same kind of political weight as a state such as Florida, whose voters sent all of its 29 electors for Trump.
Scott is a political ally of President Donald Trump, who happens to own beachfront property in Florida.
CYNICISM HAS always been a part of politics, but rarely are politicians so brazen and self-serving as President Trump and his interior secretary, Ryan Zinke, have been over the past week. Nelson spoke yesterday on the floor of the Senate.
California experienced one of the worst oil spills in US history in 1969, from an offshore drilling site near Santa Barbara, as member station KPCC notes.
ALLEN: The news that Florida was receiving a special exemption from offshore drilling was hardly out before governors and other officials from coastal states began asking for similar treatment.
GOP Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshiretold reporters "of course" he opposed drilling off the New Hampshire coast. "Where do we sign up for a waiver?" wrote New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, also a Democrat.
Other Republican coastal governors have expressed opposition to the plan as well, including South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan. "Our tourism industry and glorious natural resources are beyond compare in the United States, they are a source of enormous economic growth and prosperity and we can not take a chance with those resources, those industries, and that economy".
Democrats have argued that Trump and Zinke were being hypocritical by agreeing to a request by Florida's Republican governor to withdraw from the drilling plan, but not making the same accommodation to states with Democratic governors.
Trump's proudest boast is the performance of the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones index since he became president. Market reaction to the reports that an exit is imminent will have given Trump pause for thought.
The Eagles are the top-ranked unit against the run, but less impressive against the pass at 17th in pass yards allowed. In the Falcons' three games against the Eagles since 2012, Jones averaged eight catches for 133 yards and a touchdown.
