Urgent Gulf Coastal Recovery Action – Support the Coastal Jobs Creation Act

Please help champion The Coastal Jobs Creation Act of 2010 (HR 4914), a bill that will financially assist fishing communities in the face of huge challenges including the recent Gulf of Mexico oil disaster.

Please take a moment to review this request, and call your Congressional Representatives today, and encourage them to pass HR 4914. Help us flood Congress today, Thursday, June 17, 2010, with calls of support for a bill.

The Coastal Jobs Creation Act of 2010 is new legislation that creates jobs for fishermen and coastal communities as fish populations rebuild. It creates a grant program, called the “Coastal Jobs Creation Grant Program”, that will help fund new jobs for fishermen. The grant will also promote sustainable fisheries and fishing communities, revitalize waterfronts, and improve the ocean environment.
