“Congressman Cunningham will tell us about the Coastal and Marine Economies Protection Act (H.R. 1941), a bill that would ban offshore drilling in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The bill passed out of committee last month and will be on the House floor for a vote the week of September 9.

State Senator Chip Campsen will share more about the budget proviso he championed to keep state dollars from going toward permitting the onshore infrastructure associated with offshore drilling.

We’ll also get an update on a bill pending in the South Carolina House of Representatives. Representative Peter McCoy’s bill (H 3087) would make the ban on state infrastructure for offshore drilling permanent. Senator Campsen also has a similar bill in the state Senate.

Join us Monday to find out what you can do to help these bills pass, and to send a clear message to Washington: We don’t want drilling for oil and gas off the coast of South Carolina.”
