Some Florida Republican congressmen may be caving under pressure from Big Oil and their allies in Congress to allow our current ban on offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico to expire in 2022.

We can’t let this awful deal happen. Send the below letter to your members of Congress right now: no oil rigs off Florida’s coast!
Optional: You can customize your letter below. Consider sharing why you believe Florida's coast needs to be protected from offshore oil drilling.
