Coastal Conservation League calls on Congress to settle drilling debate

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Following remarks by Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to the Wall Street Journal confirming the Trump administration’s plan for federal offshore oil and gas leasing is on hold indefinitely, Executive Director Laura Cantral released the following statement: 

Let’s settle this debate once and for all. Congress should move quickly to pass Representative Joe Cunningham’s permanent ban on dangerous offshore drilling in Atlantic waters and off the South Carolina coast.
