Update on Louisiana's 2012 Coastal Master Plan:
Earlier today, the Louisiana House of Representatives Committee on Natural Resources and Environment unanimously approved the 2012 Coastal Master Plan (CR 46) and Annual State Coastal Protection and Restoration Plan (CR 41). On Monday, both plans passed the House Transportation Committee by a vote of 11-0. The next and final step for the master plan is consideration by the full Louisiana House of Representatives, which will likely happen early next week.
The Coastal Master Plan lays out a bold 50-year vision for protecting and restoring Louisiana's coastal area. Earlier this month, the Louisiana State Senate passed the master plan and sent it to the House for review. Be sure to follow our Delta Dispatches blog for more updates.
