Oil dump fines, Where does the money go?

So, After a plea deal, $2m in fines.

Where does this money go?
Cleaning up this or other messes?
Into the political funds?

That is what I was afraid of.
I further assume speeding fines in whale zones, goes to the general waist fund also.

So none of these moneys are hot tracked directly back into any on the seas cleanup, marine support or proper marine environment research.

What a scam

Not to sound rude, but did you read the article you posted?

The proposed $2 million criminal penalty includes $500,000 in community service payments that will fund maritime environmental projects in the Eastern District of Louisiana.

Well there ya go. Thx.
I did not notice that tid-bit.
Sometimes I just cant finish reading depressing news.

Politicians rely on that phenomenon.
