Frontline Communities to Obama: No New Offshore Drilling

WASHINGTON - Today marks the closing of the 90-day comment period for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) proposed 2017-2022 Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program. During this time, more than one million comments from frontline communities, concerned citizens, and organizations from all over the United States were collected thanking BOEM for protecting the Atlantic Ocean and calling on it to extend that protection to the Arctic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico – the two regions left vulnerable to oil and gas drilling in this plan.
