Success on the Neah Bay Tug

In Washington, it is hard to imagine a better way to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill than by winning the long fought campaign for a year-round rescue tug at Neah Bay. Huge thanks to Surfrider Foundation's own, Kevin Ranker, now a freshman senator in the Washington State Legislature, for adopting this initiative and making it happen. He worked with a great team including People for Puget Sound, the Makah Tribe, Fred Felleman, Surfrider Foundation and others.

I see that the Neah Bay tug funding finally has been passed by both houses of the legislature, and delivered to the Governor for signature. If the Governor is planning a public signing ceremony, it will be good to publicize it well in advance so the many advocates and volunteer activists who have worked on this issue may attend.
