  •  In my view This compromise is very poor (3+ / 0-)

    Right now the limit is 100 miles. So Obama would change it to 50 miles. It's additionally insulting that Obama would effectively reduce the law enacted by Jeb Bush and President Bush.

    Politicians are always coming up with innovative compromises. For example they often give half of a piece of land to developers while requiring that the developer preserve half of it.

    I am very dubious about such compromises. Typically they are just ways to let the developers gradually nibble away at the environment.

      Its hypothetical compromise now...Maybe for political reasons because 70% of Americans favor off-shore drilling and repubs are hammering him for it.  What would you recommend?
