State Senator Ernie Lopez has filed legislation that would ban offshore drilling off Delaware’s coast.  SB 200 would prohibit drilling for oil or natural gas in Delaware’s coastal zone and territorial waters and precludes DNREC from issuing any permits in connection with the development of offshore drilling infrastructure, whether proposed for Delaware territorial waters or waters outside of the State.
