On Friday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said he had formally asked for the state to be excluded from a federal offshore drilling program. He says the program would threaten its ocean resources and endanger efforts toward a cleaner energy economy.
The five-year program was launched by the federal government in early January. It proposes to make over 90 percent of the total U.S. offshore acreage available to oil and gas drilling. According to a statement from Cuomo’s office, the plan would open two areas of the North Atlantic coast adjacent to New York State for fossil fuel exploration.
