6/19/18: Keep Families Together Act

3/1: Comment On Offshore Drilling

The Department of Interior has announced plans to expand offshore oil and gas drilling in U.S. waters, including the Atlantic, Pacific, Arctic, and Gulf of Mexico.  This devastating plan would overturn the current 5 year program which protects these areas and was developed by years of environmental review and input from millions of citizens.
