Yesterday, the Bureau of Governmental Research issued a scathing report concluding that SB 79–proposed by Sen Robert Adley–should be rejected.
The BGR report wrote, “the devastating toll taken by the 2005 levee failures…prompted voters statewide to demand a different approach to flood protection in New Orleans.”
The report, said SB 79 “vastly increased the governor’s influence over the boards’ decision-making processes.”
Levees.org agrees and believes SB 79 will undo the historic legislation passed after the Army Corps of Engineers’ levees failed the people of the City. SB 79′s permanent changes appear to have one goal: to protect the Oil and Gas Industry.
