The city of Long Beach is about to get a big economic boost, thanks to increased oil drilling.The State Senate and Assembly unanimously passed a bill authorizing more drilling in the Long Beach area, which may give the city as much as $130 million over a 10 year period.

An additional $150 million would go to the port and $200 million would go to the state, but some residents question whether additional drilling will negatively impact the environment.
