Sec. Mabus, who was appointed by President Obama to lead the Administration’s efforts to develop a long-term Gulf Coast Restoration Plan, is participating in a public meeting with the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority in the morning, followed by coastal fly-over and tour of the Chandeleur Islands.
According to Gov. Jindal, well over  300 miles of Louisiana coast is now impacted by the BP oil spill.  Not only is the spill affecting Louisiana but the Obama administration has ordered a moratorium on certain Gulf of Mexico rig drilling that is hurting the Louisiana economy and many of families and businesses already hurt by the oil spill.
