President Obama and his administration are threatening to turn their backs on Louisiana, the Gulf Coast and thousands of jobs with this unprecedented move
The president wants to raid Louisiana and other Gulf Coast states of revenue that was promised to them for coastal restoration projects through GOMESA. I will do everything in my power to use my seats on the Senate Appropriations and Energy and Natural Resources Committees to not only block the President’s proposal, but fight to increase Louisiana’s share of offshore revenue. Funding for coastal restoration was a promise made to Louisiana and it is a promise that must be kept.
The president’s budget plan to funnel the Gulf states’ offshore energy revenue out of those states is incredibly insulting to Louisianians
