Rep. Costello Statement on Offshore Drilling Announcement

January 4, 2018
Press Release

West Chester, PA -- Rep. Ryan Costello (PA-06) today issued the following statement on today's announcement regarding offshore drilling:

We must prioritize being good stewards of the environment, and this decision strikes me as unnecessary at this time. Our energy needs are increasingly being met by our existing natural resources, along with enhanced battery storage capacity. I do not believe we need to open up more federal waters to offshore drilling and I will continue to advocate that this plan changes substantially.
