New Push for an Oil Tax

Hosted by

For the first time since the Santa Barbara Oil Spill of 1969, the state legislature took a vote last month on new offshore drilling. The Senate approved, but the Assembly said “no,” in a vote that has since been expunged from the record.  Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi chairs the State Lands Commission, and he plans to raise the issue again at a meeting next week in Los Angeles.
