When 77,564 EDF activists like you demanded that BP's Clean Water Act fines be directed to restoring the Gulf, they expected Louisiana's Coastal Protection and Restoration Fund to be used for coastal protection and restoration—but it's currently being misused.
Hope lies in HB 490. The bill adds succinct, qualifying language to Louisiana's Constitution that would prohibit not only appropriations from the Coastal Fund, but also pass-through transfers. Louisiana's House has already passed it—now the fight moves to the State Senate.
Support HB 490. Fight to ensure that the Coastal Fund is fully protected and used solely for coastal uses, as the law intended.
