Oil Drilling Poll in the Miami Herald


The UEL passed a resolution in October 2009, before the spill, against Oil Drilling in Florida that says:

A RESOLUTION OF THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT LEAGUE OF GREATER MIAMI, FLORIDA, OPPOSING THE APPROVAL OF OIL DRILLING IN FLORIDA’S WATERS IN AREAS OTHER THAN THOSE ALREADY APPROVED FOR OIL LEASING AND OIL EXPLORATION.

As a result we were quite surprised to see the St. Pete Times/Miami Herald poll results today, in light of the oil spill in Louisiana, that Floridians still cling to the idea of oil drilling off our coast. The poll said that 44% of Floridians do not support a constitutional amendment banning oil drilling off Florida’s Coastline.
