Bobby Jindal on Environment

Republican Governor; previously Representative (LA-1)


$300 million for hurricane protection & coastal restoration

I have proposed a $300 million investment--the largest financial commitment in our state's history--to hurricane protection and coastal restoration efforts. We must begin to fund the projects in our state's master plan immediately so we can get to work on protecting our coast and guarding against the next possible disaster. Coastal restoration can no longer wait. Hurricane protection efforts can no longer be delayed. The time for studies is long past gone. We need to get started.
