Governor Edwards' First Year in Office, Not in My Bayou

Governor Edwards' First Year in Office One year ago Wednesday, Governor John Bel Edward took office. Edwards marked the one year anniversary with a speech at the Governor’s mansion. With challenges in 2016 ranging from the state budget deficit, two catastrophic floods, a summer of civil unrest following shootings in Baton Rouge, Edwards remains hopeful. “I’m even more optimistic about our future because I’ve seen what we all can accomplish in one year in spite of the significant obstacles we’ve faced.” SHARE

Not in My Bayou The Army Corps of Engineers and Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality held a public meeting Thursday on the proposed Bayou Bridge Pipeline project; a 162-mile pipeline that would carry oil through 11 southern parishes. Several environmental groups are against the pipeline including the Louisiana Bucket Brigade and Sierra Club stating it would cause permanent damage to the environment. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation the permit application conforms to mandated safety standards. We’ll hear from supporters on both sides of the pipeline issue. SHARE
