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. Rick Scott
that the oil is still out in the Gulf and the future of our ecosystem is
uncertain. Ask the state of Florida 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.
RESTORE the Gulf
Dear [Decision Maker],
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
