The Trustees have proposed a comprehensive, integrated, ecosystem restoration plan for the Gulf of Mexico. The draft plan is based on our thorough assessment of impacts to the Gulf's natural resources and the services they provide following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The draft plan would allocate up to $8.8 billion allocated for natural resource injuries under a proposed settlement with BP.
