Four of the five members of San Diego’s Congressional delegation have taken significant actions to safeguard our coastline from new offshore drilling. They are Reps. Susan Davis, Juan Vargas, Mike Levin and Scott Peters.
All 4 voted yes with Republicans and Democrats to block funds for President Trump’s Inside Department to have out offshore drilling routines. I thank you, Reps. Peters, Levin, Vargas, and Davis.
I have lived by the ocean for 42 yrs and treasure it with a excellent ferocity. It wants our upmost ongoing defense.
Each and every of these four have also co-sponsored two expenditures that would permanently ban drilling off California’s coast (1 would do this for the whole Pacific Coast). Even with a President intent on providing our coastline away to Major Oil, we have elected reps dedicated to protecting against a important oil spill like the 1969 Santa Barbara catastrophe or the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon catastrophe.
While the Trump administration’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement makes moves to weaken rig basic safety, our Congressional leaders carry on to make the correct moves to steer clear of harmful our treasured coastline.
Let us hope that Rep. Duncan Hunter ultimately joins the 4 many others in battling to shield what we appreciate. I’m grateful for the leadership that the San Diego delegation has revealed for ocean conservation.
