Now that Congress has passed the RESTORE Act, which directs BP's Clean Water Act fines to Gulf recovery, the Gulf States are anxiously waiting for BP to pay those fines, up to $20 billion, so they can start using the funds. This is an unprecedented amount of money for a historic oil disaster, and it will be largely incumbent upon state leaders to ensure it is used effectively for environmental restoration.Please fill send the message below to help us to remind Gov. Jindal that the oil is still out in the Gulf and the future of our ecosystem is uncertain. Ask the state of Louisiana to prioritize funding projects that boost our local economy by focusing on healing our coast and communities that continue to suffer in the wake of BP's disaster.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Gulf Restoration Network.
