2016 Senate Coastal Issues Forum
In a first-of-its-kind forum, five top candidates for Louisiana’s open senate seat gather at LSU to lay out their plans for making the restoration and protection of Coastal Louisiana a national priority. The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana Coastal Issues Forum highlighted the fact that Louisiana is facing a land loss crisis that will require bold, science-based action by our next senator.
“We often think of our land loss crisis as one that only affects Louisiana, but in reality it’s a problem that has far reaching ramifications. Tonight we asked some tough questions of our US Senate candidate and I think it’s clear that they understand the importance of taking bold actions to save our coast,” said Kimberly Davis Reyher, CRCL’s Executive Director. “To succeed, it will take unprecedented leadership, coordination, and political resolve.”
