The Trump Administration just ignored the majority of people and legislators up and down the coast to propose a dangerous plan for offshore oil and gas drilling. This plan would open up the Atlantic ocean to drilling – exposing Maine's coast to the risks of oil spills and seismic testing.
Our country has seen the damage and devastation that oil spills cause, and we can't afford to let that happen to the places we love up and down our coast.
With this plan, the Trump Administration is threatening the tourism economy, fishing industry, and way of life that support so many Mainers in order to benefit his friends in the oil industry. The wildlife and people who rely on our coast are far more important than a little more oil, so we need to make sure our voices are heard.
Submit your public comment to the Department of the Interior now, and ask them to say "NO" to offshore drilling off Maine's coast!
