New Economic Development Coalition

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Officials and organizations from Alabama,
Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi are forming a new economic
development coalition.
Dubbed "Ready 4 Takeoff," the new coalition is calling for,
among other things, federal government purchases of seafood for the
military, schools and other agencies to help the Gulf seafood
industry recover from the BP oil spill.
Also, the group says its supporting efforts that would bring a
$40 billion Air Force tanker construction contract to Mobile, Ala.
