House passes two bills blocking oil and gas drilling off Pacific, Atlantic and Florida Gulf coasts

The House passes two bills banning new offshore oil and gas drilling off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and the Florida Gulf Coast.

Lawmakers who oppose the legislation argue that banning offshore drilling would harm the countryís energy production, place the U.S. behind global competitors and put national security at risk.

In 2017, President Trump signed an executive order to start a five-year development plan for offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and off the East Coast.

A federal judge later ruled that Trumpís order was unlawful because it exceeded the presidentís authority.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed two bills banning new offshore oil and gas drilling off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and the Gulf Coast of Florida. It was set to vote on a third bill banning drilling in Alaskaís Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The legislation could hamper President Donald Trumpís push to expand offshore oil and gas development.

The first bill, Protecting and Securing Floridaís Coastline Act of 2019, would ban oil and gas leasing in eastern areas of the Gulf of Mexico off the Florida coast.

The measure passed 248-180, with the support of about 20 Republicans. Rep. Francis Rooney, R-Fla., the billís sponsor, said a series of spills from oil and gas operations in the Gulf have threatened jobs in marine recreation and fishing.

The House also passed a measure, 238-189, sponsored by Rep. Joe Cunningham, D-S.C., to permanently ban oil and gas leasing off the Pacific and Atlantic coasts.

ďThis bill acknowledges that if we donít act, drilling rigs could soon appear off of our beaches,Ē said Cunningham, whose stateís beaches are a major tourist draw.

The bills were not expected to gain traction in the Republican-led Senate. But the votes in the Democratic-led House were meant to send a signal to Republicans who have supported rollbacks of environmental regulations on oil and gas.

Oil and gas interests opposed the bills, saying bans only increase U.S. dependence on foreign oil.
