Rick Scott voiced opposition soon after the plan's January 4 release, a letter submitted by the state Department of Environmental Protection past year did not oppose the drilling plan or ask for Florida to be exempted.
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) joined eight New England Democrats and an independent on Thursday to introduce legislation barring offshore drilling along the New England coast. Florida, Zinke said, was "unique", with its coasts "heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver".
Democrats from coastal states accuse Zinke and Trump of punishing states with Democratic leaders while rewarding Republicans.
According to Matt Lee-Ashley, a senior fellow at the liberal Center for American Progress and former deputy chief of staff in Obama's Interior Department, Zinke's Twitter announcement that Florida will be exempt undermines the process of the drafting of the final drilling plan. "Local voice matters", he insisted.
Interior Ryan Zinke made such a pledge on Tuesday in announcing that Florida will be excluded from the offshore drilling plan. "So, there is a lot that needs to be done, and taking drilling off the table is just one small piece of the puzzle". Sanford's colleague in representing South Carolina's coast in Congress, Rep. Tom Rice (R), also announced his opposition to Atlantic drilling.
The Interior Department said more than 800,000 comments from stakeholders have been received thus far, and the public will have additional opportunity to comment before the plan is finalized.
"Dear Secretary Zinke, California like Florida, has hundreds of miles of lovely coastline and a governor who wants to keep it that way".
"I will no doubt talk to every governor", he said.
"I think it's a possibility that there's a way that it could be done that was judicious and made sense, but you've got to make sure the environment, the investment that Georgia has already made ... are protected". "But we won't forget history or ignore science".
California's state government has opposed offshore drilling for almost 50 years, despite the presence of lucrative fossil fuel deposits, following an oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara in 1969.
The bureau also is proposing or has granted more than a dozen other wind-power leases and projects from ME to North Carolina.
Gov. Jay Inslee is asking U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to remove Washington, along with the entire Pacific coastline, from a list of proposed sites for potential offshore oil and gas drilling.
"For someone to suggest that they're protecting Florida coast when they've done nothing to move away from unsafe fossil fuels - which is creating climate impacts like sea level rise, which threaten our coasts", Glckman said.
The complaints came as South Carolina's Republican governor said Wednesday he is seeking an exemption from the proposed drilling expansion, a move that will test the relationship between Trump and one of his earliest supporters.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions - who allegedly involved himself in the effort to oust former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James B. Comey with a false pretext, repeatedly misled the Senate on his Russian Federation contacts, supported the noxious Muslim ban, has demonized illegal immigrants for a nonexistent crime wave (thereby justifying a war on so-called sanctuary cities) and reversed a promise made to senators when he chose to reactivate enforcement of marijuana laws against ordinary users - is arguably the most unsafe and malicious member of the president's Cabinet.
