Republicans Suspect Democrats May Punt Oil Drilling Ban Past Election
Senior Republican congressional aides told CNSNews.com they believe the Democratic leadership may allow the ban on new offshore oil drilling leases to expire at the end of this month while planning to renew it early next year if they manage to win the White House and maintain control of Congress. That would allow them to avoid a potentially politically damaging showdown over offshore drilling in the month leading up to the November election. Such a tactic could succeed, the Republicans say, because no new drilling leases could be auctioned in intervening time.
