Rep Bill Cassidy and Sen. David Vitter – H.R. 1430, the Offshore Fairness Act of 2013.

This legislation will give states in the Gulf of Mexico and the south Atlantic the option to expand their offshore jurisdiction up to 10 miles off the coastline, thus giving them greater control over managing their own fisheries. It will also expand the boundary of the submerged land of the Outer Continental Shelf to 10 miles. This territorial extension will be available for the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. [email protected]
