Drill Here, Drill Now

Well almost. Pelosi's head fake bill isn't going anywhere. That means the offshore drilling ban isn't going to get automatically renewed by Congress as has been the case for so many years now.

This is something like progress.

The congressional battle over offshore drilling is far from over. Democrats are expected to press for broader energy legislation, probably next year, that would put limits on any drilling off most of the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Republicans, meanwhile, are likely to fight any resumption of the drilling bans that have been in place since 1981.
