Joint Initiative Concerned by Trump Actions on Offshore Energy

The Joint Initiative urges the Trump Administration to take a systematic approach as it crafts its legacy for the oceans and our ocean-based economy. The administration must carefully consider the valuable role that national marine sanctuaries and marine national monuments play to ensure ecological, historic, and cultural benefits for the welfare of current and future generations. In addition, the administration must maintain predictable policy processes for oil and gas development that ensure activities on the outer continental shelf proceed in a safe, environmentally responsible, and economically balanced manner.
