Gulf restoration task force to begin meeting

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - President Barack Obama's task force on the restoration of the Gulf Coast is set to begin meeting to look at how the region can be fixed after the BP oil spill.

The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force is set to have its first public meeting in Pensacola, Fla., on Monday. The meeting will be led by Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, who is overseeing the task force.

The EPA says the first meeting will focus on staffing, logistics, the panel's goals and look at the challenges facing the Gulf Coast.
