Coastal Restoration Projects Threatened By Cash Shortage

Crews Formally End Clean-up of BP Oil Spill

It appears there will be a lack of funds that will delay or lead to cancellation of coastal restoration projects scheduled to get underway in early 2019.

The Lens reports that Louisiana's Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority has learned the state is expected to incur a shortfall in its share of offshore and gas royalties.

The authority was expecting to receive a payout of about $140 million, but funding from the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act may only amount to half of that figure.
