A constitutional amendment appearing on the November ballot would ban off shore drilling in state waters if it receives 60% voter approval. A lawsuit filed Tuesday is seeking to remove the amendment from the ballot because it also would ban vaping in the workplace.

Off Shore Oil Drilling Package

A coalition calling itself “Explore Offshore” wants to encourage the exploration of the oil and natural gas off the coast of Florida and other states.

SOT Jim Nicholson

Co-Chair, Explore Offshore

“Reliable and affordable energy greatly bolsters economic security, which bolsters national security.”

Explore Offshore says drilling could bring in 2 point six billion a year, and create 56 thousand jobs in Florida alone, but Jonathan Webber with Florida Conservation Voters says Florida can’t afford another disaster like the 2010 BP oil spill

SOT Jonathan Webber

Florida Conservation Voters

“Anything that would put our coastal tourism in jeopardy needs to be considered long and hard by our elected officials and the people of Florida.”

The group includes former Florida Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp and former U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson. Both say developments in technology have made off shore drilling safer than ever.

SOT Jeff Kottkamp

Co-Chair, Explore Offshore

“We can do this in a balanced and responsible way to protect the environment of Florida.”

But Webber says no technology is fool-proof.

SOT Jonathan Webber

Florida Conservation Voters

“There’s no human endeavor that’s ever been without any kind of human error.”

“President Donald Trump announced earlier this year offshore drilling would be on the table for The United States’ coastlines, But soon after secretary of interior Ryan Zinke announced Florida would be exempt.”

SOT Secretary Ryan Zinke (From 01.09.2018)

U.S. Department of Interior

“There’s no human endeavor that’s ever been without any kind of human error.”

How much weight that commitment holds is unclear.

“Anything that would put our coastal tourism in jeopardy needs to be considered long and hard by our elected officials and the people of Florida.”
