House Dems will Allow Offshore Drilling Ban to Expire

September 24, 2008

It’s been reported that House Democrats have decided to allow a 26-year ban on drilling to expire at the end of the month.  A $600b funding bill won't include any language on offshore drilling, effectively lifting the ban on October 1.
 Democrats pushed to add a proposal passed in the House of Representatives last week to open up areas at least 50 miles offshore to drilling if states agree, but the White House objected.
