A speech by Johnny Bradberry before the Baton Rouge Press Club on October 16, 2017. Bradberry is the chairman of the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA). He discusses: Louisiana’s coastal land loss crisis; the state’s loss of 1900 square miles since the 1930s; the 2017 update to the coastal master plan; CRPA’s funding sources; and their implementation challenges due to the slow permitting process from federal government agencies.
