Gov Kate Brown bans offshore drilling in Oregon by executive order


https://www.oregonlive.com/politics/index.ssf/2018/10/kate_brown_bans_offshore_drill.html


SALEM — Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has issued an executive order blocking offshore oil drilling.

Thursday's order directs state agencies to protect Oregon's coastal economy by preventing activities associated with offshore oil and gas drilling. It comes as the Trump administration seeks to expand offshore drilling and scrapped an Obama-era policy to protect oceans and the Great Lakes, replacing it with one emphasizing economic growth.

Brown, a Democrat, sought an exemption for Oregon from the administration but has not received one. Florida's Republican governor did receive an exemption.

Brown said her executive order will make it clear to oil and gas speculators that Oregon is not for sale. States control 3 miles of ocean closest to shore.

Good, fuck over everyone who aren’t “Woke” enough to live in Portland. Just like New York if you don’t live in NYC, Long Island or Westchester county. CT too, good luck to you if you don’t live in Fairfield county.

These microcosms are proof positive of why the Electoral College is absolutely vital.

As far as I know, the last attempt to drill for oil off the Washington-Oregon coast was 50 years ago. What makes her think anybody's interested now? Feels more like posturing to get votes.

There are huge deposits up here. Companies still give it the 'ol college try from time to time.

In a related story, the governor of Arizona just issued an executive order banning the harvesting of ice blocks from all lakes in the state in order to protect lake coast economies.
