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. 


Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
One year after the BP oil blowout, the worst environmental disaster in American history, 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 would profit at the expense of Gulf Coast communities.

It's time to get serious about Gulf Coast restoration.

I urge you to support clear legislation to direct BP's fines where they should go: to the Gulf Coast to support the people, ecology, and economies so tragically harmed last year.

Thank you for your support.
