New oil spill money

    Meggan Kole is gathering details about 27.5 million dollars in new funds being released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for wetland enhancement, dam removal, and shoreline improvements following the 2004 Athos I oil spill.  The ship struck a submerged anchor while docking in Paulsboro, New Jersey, and dumped about 265 gallons, which spread along 280 miles of the Atlantic Coast.  She’ll have a report online later, as well as on All Things Considered.
