Request for Public Input for BP Money

Critics of restoration projects financed by BP money say there should be more public input
There should be more opportunities for the public to participate in assessing the damage to natural resources caused by the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, residents of St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes and representatives of several environmental groups said during public hearings Wednesday and Thursday. Restoration projects also should be approved more quickly, so oil spill damage can be reversed, several officials said.
And any restoration projects resulting from the damage assessment should employ local fishers most hurt by the spill, local residents said.
