Sen. Warren Unveils Public Lands Proposal, Incl. Ban on Drilling

HeadlineApr 16, 2019

In environmental news, Democratic presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren announced she would ban any new fossil fuel drilling on public lands or waters—on day one of her presidency. In a post on Medium, Warren also vowed to increase the production of renewable energy, restore protections to national monuments targeted by the Trump administration, bring in local and tribal leaders to help manage public lands, and create thousands of jobs via a youth and veteran “Conservation Corps.” Senator Warren wrote, “We must not allow corporations to pillage our public lands. America’s public lands belong to all of us. We should start acting like it.”
