The proposed new MMS 5-Year Oil Lease plan is just plain scary. This plan was drawn up by the Bush Administration in their waning hours and is now the responsibility of Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar.
There are 4 hearings coming up in April to hear from the public on this proposed plan. We should voice our opposition loudly!
Monday, April 6, 2009 – Atlantic City, New Jersey
Wednesday, April 8, 2009 – New Orleans, Louisiana
Tuesday, April 14, 2009 – Anchorage, Alaska
Thursday, April 16, 2009 – San Francisco, California
