OFFSHORE DRILLING- U.S. SENATOR SHELDON WHITEHOUSE.


I'm proud to stand with Governor Gina Raimondo, Congressman Jim Langevin, and Congressman David Cicilline united against President Trump's plan to open up our coast to offshore drilling by big oil and gas corporations at the risk of the decades of progress we’ve made cleaning up Narragansett Bay, investing in our ports, and leading on offshore wind energy. We remember all too well the economic and environmental destruction caused by the North Cape oil spill, and the World Prodigy accident before that. President Trump’s drilling proposal threatens the jobs of hardworking fishermen who carve out a living the Bay and those of everyone who works near the coast, and it won't happen on our watch.
