Sen. BilI Cassidy has reiterated what all of us in South Louisiana have been saying for years, which is our levee systems and restoration of levees need to be addressed. The flooding last week is just the latest episode in this drams, going back to Rita and Ike.
“Whether it is south or north Louisiana, we’ve got a lot of levees that need to be updated. We’ve got flood protection that needs to be redone,” he said. “The advocacy of the people who are in affected communities is essential... No one else can present your case as well as you.”
