WPRI ANCHOR: U.S. Senator Jack Reed is pushing for a Regional Ocean Planning Policy in the Northeast -- much like the one Rhode Island has already put in place. This morning, Senator Jack Reed was in Bristol, promoting the benefits of that collaborative at Roger Williams University School of Law. He says Rhode island's Ocean Management Plan has been an extroadinarily effective tool, and is now recognized as the national model to begin to deploy wind resources off the coast of the United States.

Sen. Jack ReedREED: "This is a thoughtful, scientific-based approach to siting these facilities, to avoiding conflicts with fishing grounds, to avoiding conflict with transit routes of ships, to picking the best possible locations to maximize wind and minimize impacts on other industries."

ANCHOR: The Northeastern Regional Council has received $1.46 million in federal funding to implement that new policy right here in New England.
