Yesterday, in the House Natural Resources and Environment Committee of our Louisiana Legislature, we saw some of legislators blatantly say that the purpose of Senate Bill 469 is to kill the Big Oil Lawsuit.
Furthermore, Senator Bret Allain, the author of S.B. 469, is so focused on stopping the lawsuit, that he has proposed legislation that could put millions of dollars of federal funding at risk. Our legislators are protecting the interests of Big Oil and not Citizens!
Senator Allain and also Senator Robert Adley are so intent on stopping the lawsuit against 97 oil, gas and pipeline companies for the damage to our protective coastal wetlands that the consequences of this bill have not been thought out. And the proposed legislation may also be illegal! Please click here and urge your state representative to VOTE NO on Senate Bill 469. http://go.levees.org/SB469
