Tulane Water Law Institute Releases RESTORE ACT White Paper

Tulane Institute on Water Resources Law and Policy recently released a White Paper entitled, Promise, Purpose, and Challenge: Putting the RESTORE Act into Context for the Communities and Ecosystems of the Gulf of Mexico, aimed at improving the public’s understanding about the Act and its implications on the ecosystems and communities of the Gulf.

The RESTORE Act was enacted by Congress in 2012 and redirects a portion of the Clean Water Act administrative and civil penalties flowing from the Deep Water Horizon disaster to the Gulf Coast for ecologic restoration, economic sustainability, and the encouragement of Gulf oriented science.
