Offshore oil

A woman walks around the point at Refugio State Beach a year after the 2015 oil spill that left Platform Holly shut down and Venoco filing for bankruptcy.

A resolution opposing any new offshore oil development leases in federal waters off the California coast was approved Tuesday on a 3-2 vote of the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors.

Fourth District Supervisor Peter Adam and 5th District Supervisor Steve Lavagnino cast the dissenting votes.

The resolution will now be sent to President Donald Trump, the vice president, the secretary of the interior, ranking members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, several committees of both houses, the Bureau of Ocean Management, California Gov. Jerry Brown, state legislators and the State Lands Commission
