Gulf of Mexico Alliance scraps public workshops in favor of Survey MonkeyThe Gulf of Mexico Alliance, a multi-Gulf state government partnership, created by all five Governors to protect the environmental and economic resources of the Gulf coast is scrapping their plans to hold public opinion workshops on their new draft 5 year plan in four of the five Gulf states. Though Florida citizens and conservation groups were able to meaningfully participate in development of the plan through face to face meetings, residents of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas will only be able to give feedback on the draft through an online service called Survey Monkey. The brief public comment period ends March 13th. No reason has been given as to why the Alliance is not going to hold public workshops in the other Gulf states.To see the survey, go here: more information, read the GRN’s press release
