The Association to Preserve Cape Cod has followed up its verbal opposition to the Trump Administration’s plan to allow oil and gas exploration off the east coast with written objection. That plan would open 90 percent of the U.S. outer continental shelf to oil and gas exploration.
The APCC condemned the proposal immediately after it was announced in January and has followed up with written objections to U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. The written statements were submitted during the open public comment period for the drilling proposal.
The APCC also intends to testify at the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management listening session in Boston scheduled for February 27.
