The Board will hear a request to adopt a resolution supporting the current designation of the expansion areas of the Greater Farallones and the Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries and opposing any new policies that weaken the benefits and protections they bring. The Board is aware that the Office of the President has ordered a review National Marine Sanctuaries designated in the past 10 years with the apparent goal of opening these waters to offshore oil exploration and drilling. The Board finds that the review is a potentially detrimental and unwarranted intrusion into settled law.
