Is the Dredging That Will Bring More Oil Jobs Actually Happening? Landry Weighs In [EXCLUSIVE]

Congressman Jeff Landry
97.3 The Dawg

One of the keys to boosting our oil and gas industry is dredging out the channels leading inland from the Gulf of Mexico. Our ports are not deep enough for some big ocean-going vessels to work at importing and exporting oil.

So, where are we with the digging? We had the chance to ask Congressman Jeff Landry when he was in the studio today.

Landry said he’s working to move tax money raised on imported goods to help with the dredging processes going on through his district.

“This year, we’ve been able to allocate the most we’ve actually allocated to our ports and harbors,” Landry said.

So now that we have the money, is the work actually being done? The answer still isn’t quite clear.

“No, the work is starting to be done. I think it’s starting to be done. We have a lot of work to do.”
