Current Event BY:Davien

This is Davien reporting from channel 3 news and there is a new law that stops big oil companies from drilling for oil in the water. The president is the one that made the law which will protect the environment especially in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans. Due to a law made in 1953 Obama is now able to ban offshore drilling permanently.
The ban came about because there was environmental concerns and the possibility of an oil spill. Environmental groups shouldn’t have to worry about this ban being changed in the future because the law was written carefully so it will be hard to reverse.
Dan Naatz,who works for the Independent Petroleum Association of America said our “position as a global energy leader” will get smaller if the president goes through with the ban. People in Naatz’s position don’t believe there’s such a thing as a permanent ban, but the environmental groups are prepared to protect the ban. Although there are a lot of people against this ban such as Republican Representative Rob Bishop who believes Obama is abusing his power,many others are very eager to see how this ban plays out.
