Defeat of Pro-Oil Drilling Legislation in California

Assembly Bill 2719, which would have opened the California coastline to more drilling in state waters, was defeated in committee after staunch opposition from the environmental community. Surfrider Foundation, along with our partners at Environment California, embarked on a Not the Answer "road show" of 5 California towns to educate local Chapters and communities about the dangers of offshore drilling and the importance of defeating this bill. The victory was due to the efforts of all California Chapters and a stepping stone towards positive legislation that we hope to establish to protect our coasts from more drilling.
