New Hampshire’s governor signed a ban on oil and gas drilling in the state’s coastal waters on Tuesday, a move that several states have taken in response to the Trump administration’s proposal to open new areas for exploration.

While Republican Gov. Chris Sununu said the Trump administration has assured him that drilling would not occur off New Hampshire’s 18-mile-long (30-kilometer-long) coast, he said the legislation was important to protect the waters for future generations.
