Congresswoman Wilson's Statement on the House Republicans' Offshore Oil Drilling Bill

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) issued the following statement on the House Republicans' offshore oil drilling bill, which would allow for oil drilling off the Atlantic Coast:

"I strongly oppose the House Republicans' offshore oil drilling bill. We witnessed the damage of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and we know what the Exxon Valdez spill did to Alaska. Can you imagine how much damage an oil spill off the Atlantic Coast would cause? I will not support any bill that jeopardizes our nation's coastlines, nor will I support one that could devastate our state's economy. Congress should be focused on creating jobs, not wasting time on another bill meant to further the interests of Big Oil."
