The wonderful state of California has said that they would block any attempt to increase oil production off its shores.
President Trump has opened up the Federal Controlled waters around the nation to oil and gas exploration and extraction.
But California has decided it does not want the jobs this sort of exploration would bring and the big honchos of the state do not want to help the nation as a whole become more energy independent.
Keep in mind Gov Jerry Brown has said the state needs to brace for a possible recession even though the rest of the nation is enjoying massive economic growth and prosperity.
So instead of earning tons of money off of possible oil being pumped to its shores, California would rather raise taxes on citizens and businesses, spend money fighting the Federal Government and oil companies and deny permits for oil pipe lines to carry the dark elixir of our economy.
Yup thats California for you.
