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.
