Unfortunately, the Louisiana constitution ties the hands of some levee boards creating slow, bureaucratic processes for this crucial work. YES on CA #3 will right this wrong, and give levee boards the tools to do their job!
A levee board is a local government entity whose primary job it is to prevent or mitigate flooding.
Not all of them. St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Chenier Plain and Iberia Levee Districts aren’t able to secure revenue like the other levee districts. We need to vote YES on CA #3 to fix this.
YES! Voting YES on CA #3 will give levee boards the tools they need to protect Louisiana from flooding!
CA #3 does not affect the entire state. There are only a few levee boards in south Louisiana that this constitutional amendment applies to - and they need this badly! Those levee districts are St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Chenier Plain (Calcasieu, Cameron and Vermillion Parishes) and Iberia Parish Levee Districts.
