Protect the Military Mission Line

Protect the Military Mission Line

It is widely recognized that the Gulf Range is a national treasure, unable to be replicated anywhere else in the continental United States. 

While drilling advocates have cited a potential economic impact resulting from drilling activities in the eastern Gulf as near 56,000 jobs and $2.6 billion in annual revenue; the resultant loss would be much greater.  The January 2020 Florida Defense Factbook sites Eglin Air Force Base in NW Florida as providing an impact of over $9 billion annually and over 78,000 jobs.  That economic impact would be at risk, not to mention our national security, if drilling and related exploratory activities were allowed in the EGOMEX military training range.

Oil drilling structures and associated exploratory activities east of the Military Mission Line have been identified as being incompatible with military activities, would negatively impact our military’s readiness and compromise our nation’s military superiority.

We request your support in continuing to protect this American asset writing the Senators below to pass a permanent sustainment of the Military Mission Line moratorium.
