Congressman Jeff Landry Talks Digging Up Dollars For Louisiana[Audio]
Congressman Jeff Landry stopped by the Bruce and the Kennel Club Show Tuesday morning to discuss digging up mud. Not the kind of political mud we are used to hearing about from Washington, this is good ol’ Louisiana mud and it could mean millions of dollars and hundreds of jobs for our state.
Congressman Landry told Bruce and Jude about changes in the funding for dredging Louisiana ports. You probably didn’t know that each port has a designated channel depth. Many of Louisiana’s ports are not as deep as they should be. These shallow channels prevent larger vessels from entering our port to off load or pick up equipment. The changes in the dredging budgets should help Louisiana ports achieve their full potential and allow Louisiana fabricators the opportunity to build and bid on bigger jobs.
