Warning, After Warning, After Warning
From the local officials...
Our Louisiana legislature this month passed a constitutional amendment requiring any new offshore oil and gas revenue to be put in a trust fund dedicated to coastal erosion. Louisiana has made a commitment. Now, it's time for the President to step up to the plate and support funding to prevent the untold damage to the ecology, economy and potential loss of life in large numbers. With the National Hurricane Center predicting another active hurricane season, PACE President Aaron Broussard said he fears that it is going to take a major storm and significant loss of life before the nation acts responsibly.George, it's all on public record: The levees were in dire straits, and you cut the funding that would have been used to rebuild them... You're either lying or you're neglectfully uninformed, either way you must go.
