OREGON - Speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper, Oregon Governor Kate Brown said she does not support a proposal to drill for oil off Oregon's coast.
"We have no clue that this was coming," Brown said, "We had no opportunity to express our outrage. We are outraged."
Brown said she hopes Oregon will be taken off the oil drilling proposal list, just like Florida was after Florida Governor Rick Scott expressed concern about oil drilling in the waters around Florida.
"This is absolutely unacceptable. There has been no drilling off the Pacific coast for three decades," said Brown.
