Rep. Joe Cunningham’s Statement On President Trump’s Offshore Drilling Moratorium

Rep. Joe Cunningham released the following statement in response to President Trump’s announcement of a ten-year moratorium on offshore drilling activity off the coasts of South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia: 

"President Trump’s announcement of a ten-year moratorium on offshore drilling activity off the coasts of South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia is a clear result of constant pressure from coastal communities like ours who have made it abundantly clear that offshore drilling is dangerous, unwanted, and a threat to our economy and way of life. I’m glad to see the Administration listen to the will of the people.

"But make no mistake, as quickly as the president changed his mind on offshore drilling two months before an election, he could change his mind right back the day after the election. The only way we can make sure our coasts are safe for future generations and give coastal communities the certainty they deserve is to pass my bipartisan legislation to permanently ban offshore drilling."
