"Offshore Drilling, BPA Bills Fail in Calif. Legislature"
"A bill that would have allowed the first new offshore oil lease in California in 30 years to offset budget woes failed to pass the state Legislature last week, leaving the longstanding moratorium intact for now."
Another bill that died would have banned the chemical bisphenol A from use in baby bottles and other containers used by small children.
