Offshore Drilling
House Roll Call Vote 552
Issues: Drilling, Dirty Energy

In 1981, Congress acted to protect America's shores, beaches, and marine ecosystems by adopting a moratorium on oil and gas development in coastal waters. Since then, Congress has annually reaffirmed that moratorium.

During House consideration of H.R. 2643, the Interior-Environment appropriations bill, Representative John Peterson (R-PA) offered an amendment to lift the moratorium for natural gas leasing and development. The Peterson amendment would have allowed the Interior Department to issue new leases within 25 miles of U.S. coastline. On June 26, 2007, the House rejected the amendment by a 196-233 vote (House roll call vote 552). NO is the pro-environment vote.
