Ventura County Star: Legislation to plug old wells a good first step

April 14, 2016

Legislation to start the process of finding and plugging old and abandoned oil and gas wells along California’s coast deserves the support, and funding, from the Legislature.

Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, introduced the bill, SB 900, in response to persistent seepage of oil that forced the closure of Summerland Beach between here and Santa Barbara.
