Two critical pieces of Southwest Louisiana’s recovery blueprint have succeeded today with the passage of WRDA by the Senate and the $3 billion in additional funding for the Road Home.  WRDA will help prevent the devastation of future storms in Louisiana as we continue rebuild and upgrade levees and other infrastructure.  The additional funding for the Road Home Program will help folks rebuild that which was destroyed by Hurricanes Rita and Katrina.  Today is an exciting day for Louisiana, and we must make the most of both of these programs.
