Today and tomorrow, we are asking everyone to participate in Twitter (today) and Facebook (tomorrow) Social Media Days of Action around the RESTORE Act, urging Congress to make the bill a priority this year. The RESTORE Act will ensure that 80 percent of the Gulf oil spill Clean Water Act penalties that BP and other responsible parties will have to pay will be returned the Gulf States that deserve it. We need Congress to make passing the RESTORE Act a priority, so that this money will be dedicated to Gulf Coast ecosystem and economic restoration.

You can help by joining our RESTORE Act Twitter Day of Action today! Be sure to include the #RESTOREact hashtag, as well as tagging @SenatorReid and @McConnellPress in your Tweets.
