Maine fishermen, environmentalists join in opposition to offshore drilling

This article talks about fishermen and environmentalists joining together to oppose Trump’s plans for drilling in the Atlantic Ocean.

Fishing groups, environmentalists, politicians and tourism advocates plan to use a pair of tailored public hearings this week to oppose the Trump administration’s proposal to expand offshore drilling in the Atlantic and other ocean waters.

The federal government’s meetings in Maine and New Hampshire are part of the nearly two dozen “open houses” put on by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management nationwide. Unlike a traditional hearing, the public will meet one-on-one with bureau officials and submit written comments.
