Governor-elect Ralph Northam Thursday requested an exemption to the Trump administration's plan to allow offshore drilling in almost all of United States coastal waters. Initially the Interior Department moved to allow offshore oil and gas drilling in almost all of the United States' coastal waters, but then announced it has dropped plans to open up the waters off the coast of Florida, following fierce opposition by Florida's Republican Governor Rick Scott.
Democrats, among others, immediately speculated that the exemption was approved in. "This is a political stunt orchestrated by the Trump administration to help Rick Scott who has wanted to drill off Florida's coast his entire career".
"This is about playing politics with our coast", Sierra Weaver, Senior Attorney at the Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC), said.
Zinke's decision to exempt Florida from the administration's offshore drilling plan also raised questions as to why other states with unique coastlines and a reliance on tourism ― like California or SC, for example ― don't deserve the same treatment.

There has already been significant pushback among those communities, however. "Florida, we have to remember, we are a tourism state". Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), a longtime opponent of offshore drilling. But he, too, said the federal government should defer to local officials. "Every governor has to decide what's in the best interest of their state".
"If this report is true, it is absolutely wrong to say or think this".
