04/17 - Coastal Restoration: The Next Wave

What new funding resources are available to the state?

Louisiana is in a battle against devastating land loss. The state’s 2017 updated coastal restoration Master Plan will be presented to the Legislature during the regular session that begins this month. For the first time in its history, Louisiana will have significant funding to begin implementing coastal projects, as the first of the state's long awaited oil and gas revenues kick in this year.

Critics of large river diversion projects fear fresh water will devastate salt water species and marsh grasses and take too long to have a measurable impact. Critics of dredging argue it is costly, only builds small areas, and may not be the best use of limited resources. But is it an either-or question? What new funding resources are available to the state?
