President Donald Trump has thrown bipartisanship a life preserver, signing a bipartisan piece of legislation Thursday to keep oceans clean. The bill was sponsored by Alaska Republican Sen. Dan Sullivan; among the 21 co-sponsors were 12 Democrats, including Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey.
The bill, dubbed the “Save Our Seas Act,” aims to curb the amount of waste foreign nations dump into the ocean. It authorizes the president to act in response to nations polluting international waters. Additionally, the bill allocates money into a fund dedicated to ocean clean up services.
