Report Summary

As the Trump administration considers opening more of our coasts to offshore drilling, E2 worked with local partners on the east coast – the Business Alliance for Protecting the Atlantic Coast (BAPAC) and the west coast – the Business Alliance for Protecting the Pacific Coast (BAPPC) to produce economic analysis on the enormous financial and employment value America’s ocean economy brings to states and their coastal communities across the country.
