NW Senators Working to Ban Offshore Drilling

A group of Northwest Senators are working to draft a bill that will permanently protect the Northwest coast from oil drilling. The coastal economies of Washington, Oregon and California are worth $34 billion and support more than half a million jobs. The bill would ensure that devastation like that currently occuring in the Gulf could never happen off our coast. More information in the Columbia Basin Bulletin.
