Rep. Speier introduces SF Bay restoration bill

WASHINGTON

The bill, called the "San Francisco Bay Improvement Act of 2010," would authorize $100 million a year for the next 10 years.

The money would go toward restoring wetlands, evaporating salt ponds and cleaning out mercury pollution from old mines in South San Jose.

If approved, the project would restore about 100,000 publicly owned acres over the next 20 years.
