State Rep. Nancy Mace, the Republican nominee for South Carolina’s First Congressional District, on Tuesday attended President Donald Trump's offshore drilling moratorium announcement. At the event, President Trump detailed a ten-year moratorium on offshore drilling activity off the coasts of South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia.
Nancy Mace issued the following statement after the announcement:
"As a someone who has always and will always stand in fierce opposition to offshore drilling, I am heartened to see bipartisan support for keeping our coastline safe and secure from the threat of offshore drilling. This has been a long time coming. My first rally as a state lawmaker was an anti-offshore drilling rally. The first piece of legislation I filed as a state lawmaker was an anti offshore drilling measure. With a 100% rating from the Conservation Voters of SC, I will always fight for clean air, clean water, and for our beautiful SC coastline. Today I want to thank President Trump and his administration for the invitation to this historic announcement putting in place a moratorium through 2032 that will protect our coastline from offshore drilling."
