New Jersey: Murphy signs offshore drilling ban into law

Phil Murphy (D) signed into law Friday a bill meant to block offshore drilling for oil and natural gas in state-controlled waters. The new law is in response to Trump’s executive order a year ago that encouraged oil and natural gas exploration in United States coastal waters.,, The bill, which also bans permitting of any infrastructure to serve drilling farther offshore in federally controlled waters, is meant as a direct rebuke to the Trump administration’s proposal to allow drilling off of almost all of the nation’s coasts, including off of New Jersey. >click to read<14:27
