Nelson gathers drill ban support By WILLIAM MARCH Tampa Tribune (FL) June 30, 2009Sen. Bill Nelson is attempting to reassemble the formerly solid coalition of Florida Congress members against moving oil or gas drilling closer to Florida shores, with some success.
Nelson has released a letter signed by 24 of the 27 Florida U.S. House and Senate members saying that drilling shouldn't be allowed to impinge on use of the eastern Gulf of Mexico as a military training area.
A Nelson spokesman said that would mean not altering the limits that forbid drilling within at least 100 miles of Florida's Gulf Coast and more than 200 hundred miles from Tampa Bay.
In addition to Nelson, the letter was signed by Sen. Mel Martinez and every Florida House member except three Republicans - John Mica of Winter Park, Bill Posey of Rockledge and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Miami.
