Louisiana State Senate passes Coastal Master Plan
Yesterday, the Louisiana State Senate unanimously approved the 2012 Louisiana Coastal Master Plan (SCR 46) as well as the Annual State Coastal Protection and Restoration Plan (SCR 41). The Coastal Master Plan lays out a 50-year vision for protecting and restoring Louisiana’s coastal resources and communities. In April, both the Senate Transportation and Natural Resources Committees also unanimously approved the plan. Now that that it has passed the Senate, the Coastal Master Plan will go on to the House Transportation and House Natural Resources committees for approval next week. Please check back as we continue updating on the plan’s progress in the Louisiana State Legislature over the next few weeks.
