Civil engineer and senior member of Levees.org, H.J. Bosworth, Jr. chatted recently with Spud McConnell on The Spudcast on how Tropical Storm Cindy exposed weak links in the hurricane evacuation routes.
Capping the victory, founder Sandy Rosenthal was honored – along with the bill’s sponsor – to be invited by Governor John Bel Edwards to the Capitol Press Room for a special signing.
This honor is offered only to proponents of significant legislation.
House Bill 266, authored by Rep Patrick Connick-R (Marrero), requires term limits for the small group of people that decides who will spend $60 million annually on flood protection work.*
The group is the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority nominating committee.

Today, our very own H.J. Bosworth Jr was interviewed by Fox News Channel 8 (WVUE). In this news story, John Snell discusses weak links in the region’s evacuation routes that Mr. Bosworth had pointed out years ago, and were exposed by Tropical Storm Cindy.
