Florida Newspaper Backs OCS Exploration

As goes Fort Myers, so goes the world. At least that’s the adage around here these days. Here’s a Florida newspaper backing our friend and fellow OCS warrior Rep. John Peterson in his plan to open the Outer Continental Shelf to exploration so we can begin to drive down oil prices. Imagine tapping our own reserves of oil rather than buying it elsewhere. What a concept….

Here’s the editorial from the Fort Myers News-Press. Let’s hope Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) is reading the home state papers.
