Senator questions protecting Florida from drilling

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke agreed to consider exempting Oregon from the Trump administration's offshore drilling plan after speaking with Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, her office said Friday.

By exempting Florida but not other states, Zinke showed he is "more concerned with politics than proper process when it comes to making key decisions that affect our coastal communities", said Cantwell, the top Democrat on the Senate Energy Committee.
