Cunningham comments on new oil drilling in San Luis Obispo County


SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - The Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has approved new oil drilling in the Carrizo Plain National Monument on Wednesday.

This comes after BLM approved 1.2 million acres in California for oil drilling and fracking

Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham released a statement on the decision:

“Last year, I supported a bill in the State Assembly to protect our national monuments and parks from oil drilling. San Luis Obispo County and California does not want or need to open up our most precious pieces of open space for additional oil drilling. I am disappointed in the federal government’s decision, and urge them to reconsider.”
