Tell Congress: Direct BP's Penalties to Gulf Coast Restoration

A year after the BP oil blowout, Congress still has not passed legislation to direct BP's Clean Water Act penalties to restore the Gulf Coast and help the people, ecosystem, and economies harmed by the disaster.

Without Congressional action, these funds will simply end up in the Treasury, and the federal government will profit at the expense of Gulf Coast residents and wildlife who need support.

We need your help to make sure the BP fines are directed where they're needed most: to the Gulf Coast.

Take action today to urge Congress to get serious about Gulf Coast restoration.
