Coastal Day at Louisiana Legislature Set for April 22
This annual event brings together stakeholders in Baton Rouge to talk all things coastal!

Several coastal organizations are once again planning Coastal Day at the Louisiana Legislature, which will include an informative, and even fun, agenda.

Led by Coast Builder's Coalition, the day will include a panel on creating partnerships; remarks from Governor John Bel Edwards and coastal legislators; information and discussion at the Capitol with legislators; an industry update by CPRA; tours of the LSU Center for River Studies and the lower Mississippi River physcial model; and a reception to cap off the day.  Discussions will include, but will not be limited to, this year's $700 million plus coastal annual plan, dedication of surplus dollars to coastal projects and much more.  

For more details on times and locations, check our web page ... be sure to pencil in that date in your calendar because we hope to see you in Baton Rouge!
