LOBIONDO REAFFIRMS OPPOSITION TO OFFSHORE DRILLING

On Wednesday Congressman Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ) issued a statement for the official record during the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s Informational Meeting on the proposal to allow off-shore drilling in the Mid-Atlantic region. Earlier this year LoBiondo introduced H.R. 569 which would prohibit drilling off the coast of New Jersey. He has introduced similar legislation in each Congress since 1999. The statement says in part, “I strongly oppose any proposal that would authorize drilling off New Jersey’s coast, including the current Bureau of Ocean Energy Management plan to conduct lease sales in the Mid-Atlantic planning region as included in the Proposed 2017 – 2022 Outer Continental Shelf Leasing Program and Draft Environmental Impact Statement.”
