Permanent Protection Against Offshore Drilling in the Atlantic Just a Couple Votes Away

Permanent Protection Against Offshore Drilling in the Atlantic Just a Couple Votes Away

The Build Back Better Act (reconciliation bill) in Congress contains a permanent ban on offshore oil and gas leasing for the Atlantic, Pacific, and Eastern Gulf of Mexico. We are closer now than we have ever been to achieving permanent protections for our coasts and oceans.

It’s crucial that members of Congress hear from you to pass the bill.
