GOOD NEWS! From Baton Rouge –

SB585  Passed the House  – yeas 93, nays 0. Finally passed, ordered to the Senate
SB585   by Senator Fred H. Mills, Jr. About Lake Peigneur
MINERALS:  Requires public notice for certain solution-mined cavern permits in Vermilion and Iberia parishes.

Save Lake Peigneur (who fought hard for this outcome) says,  The terrible tragedy at Bayou Corne enlightened many legislators. We thank the citizens of Bayou Corne for organizing Senator Rick Ward’s bill SB209 which does not help their situation but helps any future disasters involving salt dome cavern storage. SB 209 passed unanimously today..

The Green Army has a special message to contact your reps TODAY about “NO” to SB469. Contact info.

Tues. 2 P.M. Event at Lake FUBAR

We don’t know what happened but many helicorders stopped (or were stopped) giving info at this time.

LA10-01

LA18 went off, but they are working on the new new south berm road and it may be trucks. LA14 konked out at 2:30 p.m. – it is on the SE corner of Lake FUBAR.  They said they are just adding some limestone to the new south south berm road … so that may be a fib.
