Trump Administration: Keep safety regulations for offshore drilling
Docket ID: BSEE-2017-0008
189E1700D2 ET1SF0000.PSB000 EEEE500000
Offshore drilling is inherently dangerous, and the safety regulations under consideration were created to prevent another disaster like Deepwater Horizon in 2010.
Getting rid of these rules risks another major spill, which puts the animals that live in our oceans at risk -- everything from hypothermia in seals, to damaging the internal organs of sea otters, to causing reproductive harm in orcas.
Do not overhaul these important safety regulations for offshore drilling.
