Congressional Off-Shore Drilling Ban Expires Sept. 30, 2008 -- Unless Congress Renews

For those of us with limited knowledge of the ins and outs of the debate on off-shore drilling along American coastal waters, it is important to understand this fact:The ban by the U.S. Congress on off-shore drilling has to be imposed every fiscal year and is scheduled to expire Sept. 30, 2008.This explains President Bush's announcement that he will repeal a separate executive order on off-shore drilling leaving only the Congressional ban in place.The gambit by the President will force both houses of the Democrat-led Congress to vote before the elections on keeping the ban in place at a time...

I hope they wouldn’t. Force a vote and get the democrats on record, a month before the election, banning the expansion of domestic oil production.
-——————————BINGO !!
