This is our last opportunity to ensure that fines collected from the BP oil spill will be used to support ecosystem restoration in the Gulf of Mexico. Please ask your Senators to support the RESTORE Act before it's too late!
The BP disaster released millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf, causing devastating impacts to the region’s beaches, coastal marshes, barrier islands, and wildlife. Yet, unless Congress takes action, fines issued through the Clean Water Act will be used for unrelated federal spending instead of urgently needed environmental restoration.
Restoring the Gulf will provide major benefits to the natural environment, and will also help protect the region’s economyincluding tourism, recreation, and commercial fishing.
Please make your voice heard and ask your Senators to ensure that penalties from the BP disaster are dedicated to restoring the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem!
