I’m looking forward to joining these legislators on this trip to see, first-hand, some of the coastal issues we’re facing. I know this is going to be a productive trip,” said Gov. Edwards.

Following the flyover, Gov. Edwards and the delegation will participate in an Offshore Energy Industry Roundtable in Port Fourchon.
