Scalise Applauds Agreement Reached on $1 Billion Down Payment for Oil Spill Recovery


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Steve Scalise today released the following statement after the Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) board of trustees announced they had reached an agreement with BP on a $1 billion down payment towards NRDA for damages caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

"This down payment is a positive step in our recovery from the oil spill, and I commend all the parties involved for coming together to get this first step done," Scalise said. "Without this down payment from BP, Louisiana may have had to wait years to see any NRDA funding directed to our state. Like NRDA, securing the Clean Water Act fines that BP will have to pay is another critical step in our recovery, and I will continue fighting every day to make sure those fines are directed to Louisiana and the other coastal states that are still cleaning up the damage caused by this disaster."
