City Council Moves Towards Banning Oil Drilling Near L.A. Residents

One by one, speakers like Ashley Hernandez of Wilmington told city council members about concerns of living near drilling operations.

However, the California Independent Petroleum Association says oil companies already follow strict standards and a ban could result in legal action.
