Senator Mary Landrieu Visits Lafayette
Senator Mary Landrieu was in Lafayette today to break down the Federal Restore Act.
President Obama signed it into law Friday as part of his Transportation Bill.
The Restore Act dedicates billions of dollars in BP oil spill fine money to Gulf Coast restoration efforts.
Landrieu says the Restore Act will also help fund a Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration council.
Members of it will establish a long term comprehensive plan to rebuild the Gulf Coast.
