Frankly, I am having trouble keeping all the study groups and task forces re the Gulf Oil Spill straight in my mind. Today the President issued an Executive Order for a new one. Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force. Here are some details from NOLA.com on Oct. 5th.
On the day President Barack Obama signed an executive order setting up his new Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, the task force chairman, told more than two dozen environmental leaders in New Orleans that it’s up to Gulf Coast residents to set the agenda for the commission.
The task force was recommended by Navy Sec. Ray Mabus last week in his own report to Obama on how to move from responding to the oil spill to recovery of the coast’s ecology and economy.
