Gulf Future Coalition calls for more

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The Gulf Future Coalition is calling for more public input and greater "transparency" in the ongoing Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) process.

The NRDA is the program that will help restore resources damaged by the BP oil spill. At a news conference in Biloxi Wednesday, leaders of various environmental and social justice groups called for greater public input in deciding which restoration projects will be chosen and funded.

BP is paying one billion dollars to fund early restoration projects. Mississippi's share of that is 100 million.
