House Votes to End 25-Year Offshore Drilling Ban

I knew it wouldn’t last……Florida is gonna get screwed….BIG TIME!!!

As will most of the other states in this country that have a coastline.

The House just approved a bill to end offshore drilling ban.
With any luck at all the Senate will defeat this!!!!

Who the hell am I kidding.

"A bipartisan bid by Florida lawmakers to block oil and gas drilling within 125 miles of the coast around much of the United States was overwhelmingly rejected Thursday by the U.S. House of Representatives. The 352-65 vote came as the House considered a bill that would lift the quarter-century federal ban on drilling in much of the Outer Continental Shelf. Instead, the House adopted a bill 232-187 that would let each state decide whether to allow drilling within 100 miles of its coast. The bill also would let states that allow offshore drilling receive a share of the leasing royalties, money that now goes entirely to the federal government."

“Jeb!" actually "welcomed the passage Thursday of a bill by the U.S. House of Representatives that would allow oil and natural gas drilling 50 miles off Florida's shores, but he promised to ask state lawmakers to keep the rigs 100 miles away."

Remember this name……………..Jeb Bush………..NOT FOR PRESIDENT!!! Let him be the commissioner of the NFL………..stay tuna’d
