July 8 marked the opening of the 90-day public comment period on the Proposed Program. This comment period is the final opportunity the public has to provide feedback before the final program is announced. This is the third stage of the federal government’s decision-making process towards an approved 2023-2028 National OCS Oil and Gas Leasing Program. Now until October 6, the public can submit their input via official comments on the Proposed Program. After the comment period closes, BOEM must read, analyze, and respond to all received comments prior to issuance of the Final Program.
Action Needed: Submit your own comment to the Federal Register explaining your reasons for opposing new offshore drilling leases.
It is critical that coastal communities continue to be vocal and active during the active comment period to ensure the federal government remains aware of the strong opposition to more dirty and dangerous offshore drilling.
