Official Says U.S. Won’t End Drilling Ban in Eastern Gulf
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is rescinding its decision to expand offshore oil exploration into the eastern Gulf of Mexico and along the Atlantic Coast because of the BP oil spill, administration officials said Tuesday.
The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement had not been made, said that drilling would remain under a moratorium for those areas for at least the next seven years, until stronger safety and environmental standards were in place.
Mr. Salazar is scheduled to discuss the new policy in a news conference on Wednesday afternoon.
p.s. If anyone thinks this is not newsworthy just say so and I'll delete the diary. Don't want to take up valuable diary space.
