Trump order could lead to drilling off NJ coast

The Associated Press reports:

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday that would open the Atlantic and Arctic oceans for drilling.

The order would allow Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to revisit a plan signed by former President Barack Obama that put those oceans off limits to drilling for another five years. The order also would lift a permanent ban on some drilling in those oceans, a rule Obama signed in December.
