Florida Republicans who protested the Trump administration's plan to open almost all coastal waters to drilling cheered a vow from Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke that their state would be "off the table" in the new plans going forward. "If Secretary Zinke has really turned over a new leaf and made a decision to listen to local voices, he should listen to the outpouring of opposition coming from communities, businesses, and elected officials from both parties up and down our coasts and promptly withdraw his radical offshore drilling plan", League of Conservation Voters Deputy Legislative Director Alex Taurel said in a Tuesday night statement.
Gov. Henry McMaster of SC, who endorsed Trump in his run for president back in January 2016, said that he did not support the offshore drilling decision. "My top priority is to ensure that Florida's natural resources are protected, which is why I proposed $1.7 billion for the environment in this year's budget". Scott said drilling wouldn't happen in the "foreseeable future.We are not going to drill now.It's not safe".
'New York doesn't want drilling off our coast either, ' New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted Wednesday.

Well, Florida Gov. RickScott is a Republican. - Zinke dropped Florida from the drilling map.
