The Trump Administration announced this year its plans to open more than 90% of our nation’s coast to new and expanded oil drilling, including the California Coast and the Santa Barbara Channel. Expanded oil and gas development off of our coast significantly increases the risk of oil spills, which threaten the ocean, our wildlife, and our coast.
California legislators are fighting back against Trump’s oil leasing plan.
Speak up and support two legislative bills on the Click My Cause Two-Tap app to prohibit California from approving development that would support new offshore oil and gas in federal waters.
Senate Bill 834, authored by Hannah-Beth Jackson, and Assembly Bill 1775, authored by Monique Lìmon, would prohibit the state from approving any new leases, permits, or infrastructure that would support new oil development in federal waters. These bills are necessary to protect the California coast from the risks and impacts of new offshore oil and gas that threatens our coastal communities, environment, and economy.
On the Click My Cause Two-Tap app, sign up for mobile alerts from the Environmental Defense Center. When either bill is up for vote, the Environmental Defense Center will send you a mobile alert to act. When you see that red badge on your Click My Cause app, it’s time to act!!
