ABSTRACT
The article reports on the passage of the Clean Estuaries Act of 2010 that would reauthorize and improve the National Estuary Program (NEP) at the U.S. House of Representatives in September 2010, a move hailed by the nonprofit group Restore America's Estuaries (RAE). NEP was created in 1987 under the amendments to the Clean Water Act to protect and restore 28 estuaries across the country that are facing threat from pollution, human development and overuse. The bill would increase the funding for NEP from 35 million dollars to 50 million through 2016.
