The ocean adjacent to most of the Southeast has never hosted offshore oil and gas drilling, yet in recent years the federal government has repeatedly, misguidedly attempted to open our waters for this risky proposition. Offshore drilling is dirty, dangerous, and unneeded. Drilling off of the Southeast coast would jeopardize our coastal tourism economy, our treasured environment, and our quality of life. Fortunately, other offshore energy sources, like offshore wind, can be developed responsibly, and electric vehicles can completely offset any perceived need to drill off of our shores. We have beaten proposals to drill off our coast before, and with your support, we can beat them again, together.
