The BP Oil Spill Settlement: What It Means For Louisiana
The announcement of a settlement over BP oil spill claims means that billions of dollars could come to the state of Louisiana over the next decade. Much of that money will help fund restoration projects as part of the state’s coastal master plan.
WWNO’s Jesse Hardman sat down with Bethany Carl Kraft, the Director of the Gulf Restoration Program for the Ocean Conservancy to discuss the news. Kraft started by saying the amount of the settlement was a bit of a surprise.
