Hurricane Katrina reminded us just how important coastal restoration and levee protection are to our safety and way of life. We don't need any more talk from politicians or studies by the Corps of Engineers. As our Congressman, Steve Scalise's first priority is to fight for full funding of 100-year flood protection and our fair share of offshore oil revenues to restore our coast. In Congress, Steve Scalise authored legislation to immediately increase revenues for coastal restoration projects (H.R.6428). Louisiana's coastal wetlands are the first line of defense against hurricanes.
