November 29, 1990: Congress Passes Bill to Provide Federal Funds for Coastal Wetlands Restoration Projects      Hurricane Katrina

       Congress passes the Breaux Act, formally called The Coast Wetlands Planning, Protection, and Restoration Act (CWPPRA), establishing a task force charged with planning and prioritizing wetland restoration projects that would then be sent to Congress to be included as part of the president's annual budget submission. CWPPRA specifies that 70 percent of its authorized funds must go to Louisiana restoration projects; 15 percent to the Coastal Wetlands Conservation Grant Program, a program that provides federal funds to restoration projects in other coastal states; and 15 percent to North American Wetlands Conservation Act projects. All projects funded under the terms of this act will require non-federal matching contributions. [US Code Title 16, Chapter 59A, Sections 3952-3956] Louisiana will generate its portion of funding for projects though taxes on fishing equipment, small engine, and motorboat fuels, as well as import duties. The act is set to expire in 2009 [LACoast [.gov] website, 9/20/2005] , but will be renewed at least until 2019. [Ecological Society of America, 10/15/2004] By 2004, some $400 million will have been spent on coastal restoration projects as part of the program [Center for the Study of Public Health Impacts of Hurricanes, 2004] , resulting in at least 52,000 acres being created, restored, or protected. [Louisiana Coastal Area Study, 6/2004]
