Joint Initiative Letter to the House Committee on Natural Resources regarding the Save Our Seas Act

Letter

In March 2018, the Joint Ocean Commission Initiative (Joint Initiative) submitted a letter to the House Committee on Natural Resources Subcommittee on Water, Power, and Oceans expressing support for H.R. 2748, The Save Our Seas Act of 2017. Authorized by the Marine Debris Act of 2006, NOAA’s Marine Debris Program investigates and prevents the adverse impacts of marine debris. The Save Our Seas Act secures desperately needed funding, support, and coordination for NOAA’s Marine Debris Program.
