Coastal Restoration Plan Endorsed By Advisory Panel

The state's $50 billion coastal restoration plan is getting a thumbs up from a state advisory panel.

The Louisiana Governor's Advisory Commission on Coastal Protection endorsed the plan Wednesday.  It's aimed at shoring up disappearing Gulf Coast marshes.

The public still has a chance to give their opinion on the plan.  Comments will be received up until March 26th.

Then there will be a final draft of the plan that'll go to the state Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority board.

If the board approves it, it will go to the Legislature.
