Officials, organizations and businesses from Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi are forming a new economic development coalition for the Gulf Coast.

Dubbed "Ready 4 Takeoff," the coalition is calling for federal government purchases of seafood for the military, schools and other agencies to help the Gulf seafood industry recover from the BP PLC oil spill.

The group also will push for the acceleration of plans for sharing offshore oil and gas revenue with the gulf states and for more federal funding of rail projects in the region.

Also, the group says it is supporting efforts that would bring a contract for construction of a $40 billion Air Force aerial tanker to Mobile, Ala.

The group announced its plans in New Orleans on Thursday. A news release from the organization said it will not require substantial new government spending or new federal programs.

Thank you for the information, Anita. As I send my daughter off to school, I can warn her about another food to beware of :-(.
