U.S. Sen. David Vitter Calls For Correct Allocation Of Funds To La. In Aftermath Of 2010 Gulf Oil Spill (Video)
"We can’t keep folks in Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf Coast waiting any longer.”
That was U.S. Sen. David Vitter's message Tuesday in a hearing of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation's Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries and Coast Guard. The meeting addressed the implementation of the RESTORE Act, which was drafted to allocate funds properly to states that were affected by the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill.
“No one felt the effects of the 2010 oil spill more than the citizens of Louisiana. It devastated our economy, our communities, and our major industries,” Vitter said. “I’m urging the Obama administration to get moving once and for all on carrying out this law, and to do so in a way that is fair and transparent."
