Yesterday, the Oregon State Senate passed HB 3613 by a vote of 22-8. This bill restores the moratorium on offshore drilling for oil and gas within Oregon's Territorial Sea (0-3nm) until 2020. This bill was supported by a diverse coalition of businesses, organizations, fishing groups and the Siuslaw, Newport, and Portland Chapters of the Surfrider Foundation.
