Statement of Senator Feinstein on Interior Department Decision to Review Offshore Drilling Policy
“This is very good news from the Interior Department. Secretary Ken Salazar today announced that he intends to review the flawed offshore drilling policy of the Bush Administration – and allow the public to share their views.
Californians have long supported protecting our majestic coastline from the dangers of new offshore drilling and, if possible, I intend to testify on their behalf at the public hearing that will be held in my home state.
I look forward to turning the page on the false promise of new offshore drilling -- and instead focus on making the shift to a cleaner and greener energy policy.”
