Lautenberg: Obama Plan is "Kill, Baby, Kill"
"Drilling off the Virginia coast would endanger many of New Jersey’s beaches and vibrant coastal economies,” stated Lautenberg. “Giving Big Oil more access to our nation’s waters is really a 'Kill, baby, kill' policy: It threatens to kill jobs, kill marine life and kill coastal economies that generate billions of dollars. Offshore drilling isn’t the solution to our energy problems, and I will fight this policy and continue to push for 21st-century clean energy solutions."
The senator is one of 10 who said last week that including more oil and gas drilling in an energy and climate plan would be a deal-breaker for them.
