Protecting the Sound

February 9, 2018

I reached out to the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management...urging them to reconsider the possibility of leasing, developing, and producing oil and gas from the Atlantic Ocean.

Connecticut's economy is reliant on the Long Island Sound as an essential driver. Although no oil or gas leases can be proposed within the Long Island Sound itself, Connecticut's environmental and economic reliance on the Sound cannot be ignored during this decision making process.
