A good friend and former Sea Grant Fellow sent this photo from the White House yesterday just after watching President Obama sign the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 into law. This is an enormous victory for the ocean community as we've been waiting a long time for several initiatives within the bill to pass. It's another moment that mattered in the District leaving me hopeful for the future. We've got a lot of work to do, but it appears the tide may be turning in terms of enacting sound marine policy. Thank you Mr. President.
