One Gulf, Resilient Gulf

As part of the ongoing fight for justice following the BP disaster, Alliance Institute has been at the forefront of assuring that residents of the gulf coast region have a voice in the federal decisions being made for recovery. Partnering with the Gulf Coast Fund and the Gulf Restoration Network, Alliance Institute helped to sponsor two trips to Washington DC to push for local considerations, as put forth in the document "One Gulf, Resilient Gulf," to be included in the conversations around the Restore Act – a piece of legislation that would direct 80% of Clean Water Act fines to the states of the Gulf Coast for recovery efforts. On April 18, 2012 the House of Representatives followed the Senate in passing the legislation. The fight is not over, as we must now clear the White House.
