Sen. Nelson is blocking 3 Trump nominees until he has proof no oil will be drilled off Florida coast
By Meteor Blades

"Florida’s senior senator, Democrat Bill Nelson, went further, questioning the credibility of Zinke’s exclusion of his state from the draft drilling plan. “I don’t believe it,” he said. “This is a political stunt orchestrated by the Trump administration to help Rick Scott.” Although Scott hasn’t yet announced one way or the other, many political observers think he will run for the Senate against Nelson."
"So, last week, Nelson sent a letter to Zinke asking for details. So far, no reply. As a consequence of this silence, Nelson announced late Wednesday that he is exercising his privilege as a senator and putting a hold on the nominations of three Trump regime appointees."
"In a press release, Nelson said he will continue blocking these nominations until the draft plan is altered to extend beyond a moratorium on drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and “fully protects all of Florida’s coasts from the threat of both offshore drilling and seismic testing.” The moratorium currently expires in June 2022. Timothy Cama reports:"





====================================================

Good for Senator Nelson! He should continue blocking the Trump nominees until such a time as he has a satisfactory response to his questions. Absent that, he should proceed to keep those nominees from going forward. Other Senators should follow suit as well.

Why should ONLY FL be exempt from offshore drilling?
