The U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee meets Thursday to discuss reforms to the Army Corps of Engineers.
One of Louisiana’s senators, David Vitter, now sits as the ranking minority member of the committee.
Vitter saif the Corps has a history of putting projects on the back burner because of cost and bureaucratic entanglements.
“Important projects take twenty years or more, deadlines are almost never met,” Vitter said. “It’s just one paper shuffle after another.”
