A group of state and federal agencies Thursday released a draft plan that would allocate $45.7 million in Deepwater Horizon recovery money to 13 coastal restoration projects.

The Texas Trustee Implementation Group, which includes three state and four federal agencies, reviewed more than 800 proposed restoration projects for funding. Five of the 13 chosen projects would directly benefit the Galveston Bay area.

Studies are often expensive, but still a lot cheaper than doing the wrong project the wrong way. If the study costs are 10-15% of the total, it's usually money well spent.
