(CNN)The Biden administration released a proposed plan on Friday for where the federal government intends to hold offshore oil and gas lease sales in federal waters for the next five years. The plan would mainly limit drilling to the Gulf of Mexico, with one proposed lease sale in waters off Alaska.

The Interior Department's five-year offshore leasing plan is required by law.
But it comes at a time when the Biden administration is caught between conflicting goals: its own commitments to slash planet-warm emissions from fossil fuels, and intense political pressure over high gas prices. Interior is proposing a range of options; from no new drilling to 10 lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico -- where the vast majority of offshore drilling already occurs -- as well as one proposed sale in Alaska's Cook Inlet. However, Interior recently canceled an approved Cook Inlet sale due to lack of interest from the oil and gas industry.
    The plan would also remove public waters in the Atlantic and Pacific coasts from drilling, which was a widely anticipated move.
      In a statement accompanying the proposed plan, Interior Sec. Deb Haaland stressed the Biden administration's focus on spurring renewable energy. Read More
        "From Day One, President Biden and I have made clear our commitment to transition to a clean energy economy," Haaland said in a statement. "Today, we put forward an opportunity for the American people to consider and provide input on the future of offshore oil and gas leasing. The time for the public to weigh in on our future is now." The plan will be finalized after a 90-day public comment period, though that process could take much longer.

          Fernando Tatis Jr. releases statement on 80-game PED suspension

          Fernando Tatis Jr. has been suspended 80 games after testing positive for PEDs and the Padres superstar released a statement on the matter. 

          The baseball world was rocked on Friday night as news broke that San Diego Padres superstar Fernando Tatis Jr. had tested positive for the PED Clostebol and would be suspended for 80 games.

          As Tatis was working his way back onto the field from an offseason wrist surgery that has required a lengthy and extensive recovery that has kept him off the field for the entire season to this point, this was devastating news.

          Now, the 23-year-old star has spoken on the matter.

          Fernando Tatis Jr. suspension: Padres star releases statement

          Tatis released a full statement in which he claimed to have inadvertently taken a medication to “treat ringworm” that contained the PED Clostebol. He then apologized to fans, the Padres organization, MLB and his teammates.

          He finished the statement saying the following:

          “I am completely devastated. There is nowhere else in the world I would rather be than on the field competing with my teammates. After initially appealing the suspension, I have realized my mistake was the cause of this result, and for that reason I have decided to start serving my suspension immediately. I look forward to rejoining my teammates on the field in 2023.”

          Fernando Tatis Jr. contract: How PED suspension impacts Padres future

          Many fans are left wondering what this 80-game suspension means for Tatis Jr.’s future in San Diego and his contract. But the truth of the matter is that it shouldn’t have much of an effect at all.

          Tatis signed a 14-year, $340 million contract and will be under that deal until the 2035 offseason. Moreover, he has a full no trade clause in the deal until the 2028 season, meaning that the Padres couldn’t get out from the deal in a trade if they wanted to (or unless Tatis approved it).

          While this isn’t good for anyone involved, though, the truth of the matter is that the 23-year-old will return early next season and this will be put in the past for him individually and San Diego. Thus, the contract isn’t much of a concern in this situation.
