It might have been better to REQUIRE DWR to r...

Jerry Brown has already expanded offshore oil drilling in state waters
“We urge the Governor to demonstrate his leadership by making his actions match his rhetoric on the need to stop burning fossil fuels to avoid an existential threat.

Brown should ban all drilling activity offshore, cut off any planned new oil and gas drilling on shore, and ban fracking outright."...
