The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) has announced that despite federal government shutdown, the comments on Queen Bess Island Restoration are still being accepted.
The government shutdown has affected the online portal for submitting public comments on the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group’s (LA TIG) Draft Restoration Plan #1.1: Queen Bess Island Restoration Project, reported CPRA.
However, interested parties can continue to comment through the official submission deadline of January 22, 2019, via regular U.S. mail to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service or via email at LATIG@la.gov.
CPRA also added that after the public comment period ends, the LA TIG will review, consider, and address public comments before releasing a final plan.
