    But not off the FL coast?

    Why exempt FL?

    I think the Gov of Fl wanted the exemption.

    This should get passed the Senate as well. But I doubt obama will sign it, his ideologies are wrapped up in forcing us to go green. Unless he has learned that unemployment will drop some by allowing private industry to work and hire people.

    About time. Course Obama can still veto. He'd have to explain to the American people why he is preventing us from drilling and producing American jobs when we have high unemployment and high gas prices.

    Since when did Obama have to explain himself?
