On Monday, April 1, 2013 Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici will host a tsunami debris cleanup roundtable discussion with local officials and stakeholders. Bonamici will announce a new bipartisan tsunami debris cleanup bill
that will allow Oregon and other states to receive federal funding for expenses already incurred in the cleanup effort. The event will occur at Columbia Hall Room 219 on the Clatsop Community College campus in Astoria, Oregon.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently obtained $5 million from the Government of Japan to assist with cleanup activities, but the agency is currently unable to allot the funding for expenses already incurred. Bonamici's bipartisan bill will correct this problem.
