Governor office: Zinke to reconsider drilling off Oregon

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke agreed to consider exempting OR from the Trump administration's offshore drilling plan after speaking with Gov. Kate Brown, her office said Friday.

Inslee joined California Governor Jerry Brown and Oregon Governor Kate Brown in condemning the plan last week, and wrote to Zinke to express his strong opposition to the plan. "Bonita Springs prides itself on our lovely shorelines that we work to protect every day".

Bipartisan opposition is growing to President Trump's proposal to greatly expand offshore oil and gas drilling. "This decision will help protect the millions of families and businesses that depend on visitors from across the globe continuing to come to Florida".

An Interior spokeswoman said Zinke talked by telephone Friday with six Democratic governors, all of whom oppose drilling off their state's coast: Govs. "Wonder why." Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., tweeted.

Shortly after the announcement, a bipartisan group of governors from states such as New York, Oregon and SC all asked publicly for their own special exceptions. One can not help but compare this episode to the tax bill Trump just signed, which strips deductions from taxpayers in blue states in order to fund various GOP ideological priorities.

He tweeted , "I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level". The program that has given her the opportunity to work and go to school legally in the United States was reinstated.

"We can not afford to take a chance with the beauty, the majesty and the economic value and vitality of our wonderful coastline in South Carolina", McMaster said.

Zinke had flown to Tallahassee on Tuesday to discuss the issue with Scott, a staunch Trump ally, in person.

"We are outraged; this is absolutely unacceptable", she said of the drilling plan. "For Floridians, we are not drilling off the coast of Florida, and clearly the governor has expressed that it's important".

The proposal comes nine months after President Donald Trump singed an executive order to open areas that are now protected by the five-year oil and gas leasing program finalized by the Obama administration in November of 2016.

The five-year plan announced by Zinke would open 90 percent of the nation's offshore reserves to development by private companies. Also discomfiting is the question of how much Trump's ownership of Florida beachfront property factored into the decision.
