TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The Latest on the New Jersey Legislature's plan to try to prevent the Trump administration's offshore oil and gas drilling plan near New Jersey (all times local):

3:20 p.m.

New Jersey lawmakers have given final legislative approval to a measure banning not only drilling in state waters, but any activity that supports it such as pipelines and docks.

The state Assembly approved a bill Thursday aimed at making it impossible to carry out oil or gas drilling off New Jersey.

The bill now goes to Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, an opponent of the drilling plan.

New Jersey is one of numerous coastal states adopting such tactics as a back-door way to thwart the Republican president's proposal.

Although it would take place in more distant federal waters, the state bans effectively block the drilling plan by preventing anything related to drilling from being built in state-controlled waters.

U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said last week state bans have a lot of leverage against the planned drilling.
