Gulf Coast Advocates Call for Executive Order to Creat Gulf Coast Civic Works Act

A Regional Task Force of Gulf Coast advocates is calling on President Obama to create a new civic works program to bring jobs to the Gulf Coast, through an executive order.   Over 250 regional and national organizations, as well as 50 interfaith community leaders, support the creation of a Gulf Coast Civic Works (GCCW) program.

The Gulf Coast Civic Works program would help restore the economic and environmental health of the region by creating thousands of jobs to rebuild essential infrastructure and protect the environment. Under the proposed Executive Order, the federal government would also take control of training and hiring workers to respond to the Oil Disaster.

Huge Federal Gulf Recovery Act Planned, Expert Says

Wednesday night on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," presidential historian Douglas Brinkley dropped a bit of a bombshell: White House sources tell him the administration plans to propose a "major public works act" (similar to the Tennessee Valley Authority project) to rebuild the battered Louisiana wetlands.

"They're going to come out with a large Gulf recovery act," Brinkley told Cooper and the other guest in the segment, James Carville. "This is a turning point. There's an appetite on Capitol Hill for a Gulf recovery act. The Mississippi River is going to have to be redirected into the marshlands."

When Cooper asked Brinkley if he thinks "this is actually going to happen," Brinkley responded, "Yes. Yes." He suggested that the project would be funded by the oil and gas industry. Those companies, he said, "are going to have to pay up to $10 billion and $15 billion" for profiting off of the state's resources for years while wreaking havoc on the local environment.
