A proposed draft plan for the next installment of money to be paid by oil giant BP would provide more assistance to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Sea Rim State Park.
The Gulf Coast states will be given an allocation of $627 million, according to this proposal, to help them reorganize and repair damage. Of this sum, $18.4 million is to be given to fund Texas restoration projects. Under this proposal, the Sea Rim State Park would receive a little over $210,000. Also included in the list of Texas projects is the rehabilitation of the Galveston Island State Park, which would be given $10.8 million for beach facilities, and an effort to reconstruct three offshore artificial reefs, which will be allotted around $7.4 million.
