Vitter Releases Coastal Restoration Plan

U.S. Senator David Vitter has just released his proposals to restore Louisiana’s coasts and improve hurricane and flood protection in a form of a plan named “Together, Louisiana Strong”.

Coastal restoration and hurricane and flood protection aren’t just important issues – they’re matters of life or death. They’re matters of survival for whole communities and ways of life,” Vitter said.

In Chapter 7 “Restoring Our Coast, Protecting Our People” of “Together, Louisiana Strong,” Vitter explains that he’ll ensure that all coastal funds like federal revenue sharing, Restore Act, and BP settlement monies are spent on coastal priorities, and are never used as one-time payments to fund other parts of state government.

He’ll prioritize and greatly accelerate 3-5 key coastal restoration projects in the Coastal Master Plan and develop an aggressive, organized campaign to raise substantial private matching funds from energy and other leading businesses which would serve as lead sponsors of specific restoration projects in the Coastal Master Plan.

Vitter’s plan is focused on facing Louisiana’s enormous challenges head on—with strong leadership and real solutions— and taking advantage of historic opportunities and make great gains.
