    Landrieu Marks 9th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Highlights America’s Resilient Coast

    “Nine years ago, Hurricane Katrina crashed our shores and left in its wake devastation and destruction all along the Gulf Coast.  In the weeks and months that followed, the story of Hurricane Katrina was about the failure of our levees to hold and our government to quickly and adequately respond to the havoc wreaked by the storm and the collapse of the federal level system.  It was about the lives lost and the long road to recovery and rebuilding that lay ahead.  But that was only the beginning of the story,” Sen. Landrieu said.

    Thanks to Landrieu, Louisiana has Received $291M to Rebuild from Isaac

    “Because we made smart reforms to how the federal government budgets and responds to manmade and natural disasters, aid was delivered right away when Isaac struck Southeast Louisiana two years ago,” Sen. Landrieu said. “Isaac also proved that when we make robust investment in flood protection, lives are saved, damage is prevented and taxpayer money is used wisely. But, unfortunately, Isaac also highlighted that too many communities still need and deserve adequate flood protection. I will continue to push Congress and the President to increase the Corps of Engineers budget to build these critical projects that save lives and tax payers’ money.”

    Daily Advertiser: Commerce: Mexico dumping sugar; fees to be imposed

    "Once this process is complete and it is determined that illegal activity occurred, Mexican sugar producers will pay a steep price that will cover the losses our Louisiana sugar producers suffered and act as a deterrent to prevent other countries from trying this in the future," U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said. "Our sugar producers work too hard and are too important to our economy to let illegal dumping go unpunished."

Landrieu secured the attendance of a high-level U.S. official, the Department of the Interior's Acting Assistant Secretary Rachel Jacobson, to advocate for the site at the World Heritage Annual Convention that met in Doha, Qatar, during the last week. Jacobson led the federal delegation along with two Louisiana officials. Just last week, Sen. Landrieu restored funding for the United States to pay its dues to the World Heritage Program so that the 21-voting member countries voted on the site's merits and not on the failure of the United States to pay its dues to the program.
