The Trump administration late Tuesday said it would not allow oil drilling off the coast of Florida, reversing course from just five days ago when Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced an expansive offshore drilling plan. Zinke said on Tuesday night drilling in the waters of the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida was “off the table” after a meeting with Florida Gov. Rick Scott.
