OFF SHORE DRILLING IS BAD FOR LONG ISLAND!
The Federal Government's decision to open up New York to Offshore oil and gas drilling is an environmental disaster waiting to happen! The America-First Offshore Energy Strategy, which expands natural gas and oil drilling, is just another example of how the Trump administration is out of touch with a majority of Americans.
In response, I hosted a hearing, along with Assemblyman Englebright and Assemblyman Anthony D'Urso, to examine the environmental implications and the potential for increased oil spills if such lease authorizations and subsequent drilling occur as well as co-sponsored legislation to prohibit state authorizations of offshore oil and natural gas drilling.
We've seen the devastating effect of drilling in Pennsylvania and on our coastal lands. As an Assemblywoman for Long Island's South Shore and the Chair of the Commission on Hazardous Waste & Toxic Substances I cannot sit back while the Federal Government tries to destroy Long Islands Coastline.
You can help me by saying NO to off shore drilling in New York and sign the petition below.
