Why is the Louisiana coast so critical to the America?
This is essentially the first on-topic question I asked the Director of Communications of the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, Jimmy Fredrick, Thursday night during a Facebook Live discussion about “The Louisiana Coast, the Economic Impact and the Risk of Losing Revenue Sharing”.
The efforts to rebuild the Louisiana coast has suffered a major and immediate setback, assuming that Congress goes along with the most recent budget proposal from President Trump.
Louisiana lawmakers, whether State or Federal, might need to decide if they want a border wall at the Mexican border or a wall of some type (figuratively speaking, that is) along the Gulf of Mexico. The same goes for all states that border the Gulf and the Atlantic/Pacific Oceans.
"So the (Louisiana) coast goes, so goes everything else".
Strong words from a second-term Congressman who is now the Chairman of the very important subcommittee on certain infrastructure and whose laws and implementations of policies will be critical, not just for Louisiana, but for every parish and every county in the United States.
