David Vitter on Local Issues
Republican Jr Senator; previously Representative (LA-1)
Create and fund coastal restoration master plan
Louisiana's coastline is our crucial first line of defense against hurricanes, and it's an enormously productive part of our economy and culture. David will support a sound coastal restoration master plan.
And he'll effectively execute that plan using the federal revenue-sharing and Restore Act funds he helped secure, as well as BP settlement and other resources.
David helped lead the hurricane recovery effort at the federal level and helped pass the recent flood insurance fix. He's been our point man in both battling against and working with the Corps of Engineers.
He'll continue that work as governor, building critical hurricane and flood protection and always improving storm readiness and response.
