Levee consolidation hits snag in Senate
After a Sunday evening session that saw parish after parish amend a bill introduced by Sen. Walter Boasso, R-Baton Rouge, Boasso returned his bill to the calendar instead of calling for a vote. The bill would have brought the state’s levee boards under one head.
Sunday was day six of the Special Legislative Session called by Gov. Kathleen Blanco to deal with issues raised by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
