Join Hands to Oppose New Offshore Oil

  • Main Beach Laguna Beach, CA (map)

The GOP administration released a draft plan earlier this month, outlined by Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, that would open up areas of the California coast to offshore drilling that previously had been off-limits for more than two decades. The Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management (BOEM) has scheduled only one public hearing, on February 8 in Sacramento, to receive testimony from the general public on the devastating impact of this proposal. (WAVE members will attend the Feb. 8 hearing as well to make sure our voices opposing this plan are heard by the BOEM.) We are joining with our environmental coalition to demonstrate that a majority of Californias are opposed to this plan.
