Jim Hood on Environment
BP spill continues to harm coast's environment and economy
General Hood said, "This tragedy continues to hurt Mississippians, and the culpable companies are answerable to pay their part and help recovery efforts. I'm glad that, as requested when we settled this case, most of the settlement money will be spent
on Coast recovery. The Coast is both an environmentally precious part of our state and an economic driver in Mississippi that deserves our help in reaching its full potential."
