house Bill H.R. 5014

Should the Moratorium on Oil & Gas Exploration Off Florida’s Coast be Extended?

Argument in favor

Floridians don’t want offshore oil and gas drilling along their coast, so the existing moratorium on leasing and drilling should be extended by seven years through 2029.

We need to face the fact that a lot of this oil just needs to be kept in the ground. The time is now to invest heavily in renewable energy.

Argument opposed

There’s already a moratorium on leasing and drilling for oil or gas off the Florida coast, let lawmakers reevaluate it as it gets closer to expiring in 2022.

The moratorium should apply to all coastal states, why does Florida get special treatment when Maryland has beautiful beaches too.
