Brewing Texas Battle: Will Gulf Oil Spill Fines be Used for Pork?

(Continued)

AUSTIN, Texas — "Sportsmen care about - and are paying attention to - how these funds are used. Hunting and fishing are kind of a way of life, and they want to make sure the natural resources are there to support those kinds of activities. This is an opportunity to make a major investment in that."

Meanwhile, there are signs the spill is still not over. Hurricane Isaac unsettled some of the remaining oil, forcing an area of the Louisiana coastline to shut down. And last month, the government began tracking a fresh "mystery sheen" that some experts say is coming from fissures in the plugged well.

Poll results are available at National Wildlife Federation. NOAA tracking of the new sheen is at www.incidentnews.gov.
