We Cannot Wait Until 2011 to Address the BP Disaster

Time is running out before the 111th Congress breaks for the last time. This is our final chance to pass a bill in the Senate that gives affected communities input into oil industry decisions and ensures that fines from the BP disaster are used to restore the Gulf.

Call your U.S. senators and tell them to pass a bill in response to the BP disaster before adjourning.

Look below for your senators' full contact information.

Check out our talking points:
  1. The Senate must not wait until the new Congress convenes in 2011 to address the BP disaster, which devastated Gulf Coast communities, businesses, and wildlife.

  2. It is essential that we establish a Gulf of Mexico Regional Citizens Advisory Council to give Gulf Coast residents a voice in oil industry decisions.

  3. Clean Water Act fines from the BP disaster should return to the Gulf Coast, where affected communities will have input into their use for restoration through the new Regional Citizens Advisory Council.

  4. Will the Senator support passing a bill that creates a Gulf of Mexico Regional Citizens Advisory Council and ensures that Clean Water Act fines from the BP disaster are directed back to the Gulf Coast?
