Blanco still looking to eliminate levee boards.

"In a memo issued to the newly-formed Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority – and obtained by Eyewitness News – Blanco asks the group to develop plans for the next legislative session that would include language that appears aimed at the single levee board concept.

Blanco charged the group to come up with language that would enable the constitutional abolishment of some levee districts and the creation of a new district in the Greater New Orleans area that would have the following objectives."
It's an absolute necessity that the governor succeed in getting the levee boards consolidated. The CPRA is a good first step.
