The Ocean, Coastal, and Watershed Education Act would authorize the National Environmental Literacy Grant Program and the Bay-Watershed Education and Training Regional Program (B-WET) in order to expand coastal, ocean, and watershed education. The bill, as amended, authorizes “such sums as may be necessary” to carry out the programs.
