We Need Federal Funding NOW!
Hurricanes, storm surges and coastal erosion put low-lying Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes in coastal Louisiana at risk. Also at risk are the oil, gas and seafood we provide this nation. Recognizing this serious vulnerability, local residents have taken upon themselves to begin building the federally-authorized Morganza to the Gulf levee, floodgate and lock system to protect our precious communities.
Local residents have taxed themselves for the past 17 years to build Morganza, investing over $787 Million in local and state dollars to date on this FEDERAL project.
The Federal Government has NOT contributed $1 toward construction of Morganza!
