Governor seeks to consolidate New Orleans area levee boards

Under the authority of the coastal restoration legislation just passed by the legislature. Needless to say this would be a Good Thing. - Louisiana Politics and News:
"Therefore I am charging the CPR Authority to develop and draft language for presentation in the next legislative session that would enable the constitutional abolishment of some levee districts and simultaneously create a new district in the greater New Orleans area with the following objectives:

1. To remove opportunities for political patronage;
2. To demand that focus be on flood related duties;
3. To provide constitutional protection of the new district; and
4. To create regional levee protection."
