    Congressman Pallone held a press conference in Long Branch last week to oppose oil and gas drilling along the Atlantic.  The Jersey Shore Partnership spoke.  Below is a quote from Cindy Ziff, Clean Ocean Action.

    Congressman Pallone has taken the helm and charted a renewed course for ocean protection by steering a bipartisan majority of the House of Representatives to block offshore drilling,” said Cindy Zipf, Executive Director of Clean Ocean Action. “His amendment would stop drilling not just off the Jersey Shore, but off the entire Atlantic Ocean. The amendment restricts funding for drilling and drilling activities. Most encouraging for the future of the ocean, the amendment passed with a strong bi-partisan majority.”
