California Signs Bill To Halt Oil and Gas Expansion In State Waters


The California Governor has signed the bill to halt the Federal Oil and Gas expansion. The Bill is in response to the Trump Administration’s heavy push to expand fossil fuel development to drill in every ocean surrounding the US. 

The governors of the Western States have protested the expansion, especially California where they have suffered through 2 oil spills since 1969. The people of California do not forget the economic troubles they had after the Santa Barbara spills. The governor of California does not want to put his citizens through that ordeal again.

So California has made a stand. Will it be enough? Let me know what you think in the Facebook Group.
