“Nineteen coastal states face tough decisions involving energy and the environment — whether or not to allow offshore drilling for oil and natural gas. Why? Because a 26-year federal ban on most offshore drilling was allowed to expire last month. So states along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts will get a bigger say on new drilling projects.” Daniel C. Vock reports for Stateline.org October 20, 2008. Story includes detailed maps of offshore tracts.
