What’s Happening in Virginia?


In 2006, Gov. Kaine of Virginia signed a bill supporting federal
efforts to determine how much natural gas exists 50 or more miles
off the Atlantic coast.


But Delacey Skinner, Kaine's communications director, said the
Bush administration's proposed review goes beyond what Kaine had
requested. She said the administration appears to be preparing for a
"carte blanche leasing out of drilling rights."


"The state's official position . . . was we asked for a narrow
lifting of the moratorium that was targeted specifically for
exploratory drilling for natural gas only," Skinner said. "In that
sense, this is significantly different from what Virginia was
seeking."


Skinner added, "There are a number of issues that Virginians
would like to see resolved before anyone moves forward with
something this sweeping."
