The ban on oil and gas drilling was set to expire in 2022. President Donald Trump said he would expand it to Florida's Atlantic coast and to the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina.
"I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again. I am not banning fracking, no matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me," Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said during a speech in western Pennsylvania on Aug. 31.
The Trump administration's plans to expand offshore drilling are on hold after a March court ruling blocked drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic, Interior Secretary David Bernhardt says.
