Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill into law Tuesday that bans oil and natural gas drilling off New Hampshire’s coastline.

Sununu signed Senate Bill 76 into law Tuesday afternoon at Ragged Neck State Park as he sat next to the bill’s primary sponsor, state Sen. Martha Fuller Clark, D-Portsmouth, and state Rep. Renny Cushing, D-Hampton, a co-sponsor of the legislation.

Fuller Clark called the new law “a very significant victory for New Hampshire and for our environment.”
