Another Winergy Proposal in the News Again

Winergy LLC , a New York company which has proposed an offshore windfarm at Eastern Shore's southern tip has suggested that moving the project from federal to state waters would increase tax revenues to the locality as described
in this article
by Jay Diem, entitled "Ocean Wind Farm Could Provide Revenues," Eastern Shore News (2/12/03). A company spokesman explained that if the project remained in state waters, revenues would be shared with a "federal bureau." But as far as I can tell, given that H.R. 5156 which would authorize the Secretary of Interior to grant rights of way for use of the Outer Continental Shelf for offshore renewable development has not yet been enacted. In the absence of this legislation, which "federal bureau" is it that would receive tax revenues?
