The Seaweed Rebellion: The Battle Over Section 8 (g) Revenues
Outer continental shelf (OCS) development has generated a great deal of conflict between the federal and state governments. This conflict, which is known as the Seaweed Rebellion, has arisen both in the courts and in Congress. One of the most controversial battles of the Seaweed Rebellion involved the disposition of $5.8 billion derived from the development of oil and gas pools common to both federal and state off-shore lands. This battle came to fruition in the case of Texas v. Secretary of Interior (Texas v. Interior).
