Senate Committee considers bill that could have major impact on waterfowl habitat in the Gulf

from Ducks Unlimited

Since the Gulf Coast spill occurred, Ducks Unlimited has been urging Congress to support legislation that ensures penalties paid by the parties responsible for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill under the Clean Water Act are directed back to the Gulf Coast region. The Senate will move one step closer towards this goal when the Committee of Environment and Public Works considers the RESTORE the Gulf Coast Act of 2011. Provisions within this bill would direct 80 percent of Gulf spill-related penalties paid under the Clean Water Act toward the long-term health of the Gulf region's coastal ecosystem and economies. more
