Leadership: Congressman Huffman is a very active ocean champion in Congress. From his seat on the House Natural Resources Committee, he continues to be a leading opponent of offshore oil drilling, has introduced legislation to prohibit drilling in the Arctic, and fought to stop new fossil fuel leasing on federal lands and waters. He also helped expand the Gulf of Farallones and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary, co-led an effort to reauthorize and improve the Magnuson-Stevens Act, and is always a voice for commonsense, science-based improvements to fisheries policies.

Through his passion for environmental protection and extensive legislative achievements, Representative Huffman is a key ally of the ocean. His record has earned a lifetime LCV rating of 99% – with a perfect 100% in 2017.
