US Govt will issue new drilling ban if loses appeal

 WASHINGTON, July 8 (Reuters) - The Obama administration
will "immediately" issue a revised drilling ban if a federal
appeals court agrees with a lower court's decision to block the
government's initial six-month moratorium on drilling in deep
waters, an Interior Department official told Reuters on
Thursday.
  However, if the appeals court supports the
administration's initial drilling moratorium, the department
will not impose a new drilling ban, the official said.
