Florida’s 2020 Gulf Range Protection Plan

The PURPOSE of this site is to provide the status of Florida’s Joint Gulf Range Complex and outline a Florida state military and defense plan to extend the oil drilling moratorium set to expire in June 2022. This is also a place where we share the work that the full team of partners is doing.


The Current Status of protecting the Gulf Range is that there is a strong, bipartisan sense of urgency among federal, state, and local FL representatives, as well as within the FL military and environmental communities, to extend the moratorium in the 116th Congress given the June 2022 expiration date and the inclusion of Gulf leases in the 2019-2024 DPP.
