President Bush has lifted an executive ban on offshore oil drilling. The move is largely symbolic because a federal law bans offshore oil drilling. The president has been pushing Congress to repeal the law, saying it could bring the cost of oil down in the U.S. If Congress backs the plan, the move could have major implications for the California and Florida coastlines. U.S. Senator Richard Burr praised the president's move. Many other North Carolina leaders are against drilling in the waters off our shores.
