As compared to California which has no tourism? Already, numerous other Governors are asking for their waivers and pointing out how important their coastlines are. Maybe the problem is Trump doesn't own land in their states?

Have you ever gotten into the water in California?

They don't get tourism from their beaches. Florida is all about the beaches. And Florida is pretty unanimously opposed. Plus the Keys have irreplaceable coral. They already have limits on commercial shipping in the corridor.

“It smacks of what we never want to see in politics which is: Is it self-serving?” Sanford said. “I mean, you can’t say, ‘I don’t want to see an oil rig from Mar-a-Lago’ as you look out from the waters of Palm Beach, but it’s okay to look at an oil rig out from Hilton Head or Charleston, South Carolina.”

“We cannot afford to take a chance with the beauty, the majesty and the economic value and vitality of our wonderful coastline,” South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster ®, who backed President Trump in his state’s competitive 2016 primary, said in a statement.

Obviously most of the furor over Zinke's decision has been from Democrats but there are other Republicans who are pissed off at the arbitrary decision by Zinke. If they exempt Florida but not other states that don't wish to be included (Maryland, North Carolina, etc.), this is going to be decided in the courts.

Mark Sanford is a partisan clown. No the courts have nothing to do with it.

They don't get tourism from their beaches. Florida is all about the beaches. And Florida is pretty unanimously opposed. Plus the Keys have irreplaceable coral. They already have limits on commercial shipping in the corridor.

Come on, you're nuts there. Santa Barbara, Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach and San Diego are among the busiest beaches in the U.S.. Yes, Northern California beaches are much colder and people are more apt to drive along the coast than actually get into the water, but you have whale-watching excursions all along the coast, to say nothing of boat tours, eco-tourism, volleyball tournaments, concerts and outdoor festivals, and surfing events.

Apparently Oregon is working hard on getting its exemption. I think Zinke blew it and will have to cave in to any state wanting an exemption. When all is said and done, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi may be the only states with visible offshore drilling locations.

And yes, I lived there from 1977-1986 when I was 13-22 in Huntington Beach and Santa Monica. I had some high school classmates at Marina HS that went to the beach every single day during the summer (and many days during the school year too). This was before they were that concerned with skin cancer and I suspect they look much older now than their actual ages, but that's why LA is also the plastic surgery capital of the world.

ETA - here's a link which backs up my post. 9 of the top 25 busiest beaches in the U.S. according to this list are in California (compared to 8 in Florida). Surprisingly though, #1 on this list is in Delaware.

What? So Mark "Hiking the Appalachian Trail" Sanford is being partisan by being a Republican opposed to a Republican initiative? 01-lauramac2

That is an interesting comment. Hopefully that will never happen.
