Jul 6, 2012 — On Friday, July 6, in the late afternoon, President Obama will hold an event at the White House to sign sign the Transportation Bill which include the RESTORE Act. This bill will direct BP's Clean Water Act fines to the Gulf to be used for ecosystem and economic restoration. This is a huge win for the Gulf, highlighting what we can do when we speak up for what we believe in!

While we applaud this bi-partisan effort, we must urge Congress to come together again to establish a Regional Citizens' Advisory Council to give affected communities a voice in holding the oil industry accountable. We must learn the lessons of BP and do everything in our power to ensure that a disaster of this magnitude never happens again. These reforms are essential to the recovery and protection of the Gulf and the nation.
