WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) today released a statement following Senate passage of several key Louisiana priorities he worked to include in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Provisions Cassidy worked to secure include the vast majority of his SHORRE Act which includes numerous provisions to protect and restore our nation’s coastlines and rivers and provides billions for Louisiana water projects.
The NDAA already passed the House last week by a vote of 350-80, so it is on the way to the president’s desk to be signed into law.
“The NDAA ensures our service members and families have the resources and support they deserve. We also strengthen our defense against natural disasters with hurricane protections for Louisiana,” said Dr. Cassidy. “Thanks to Congressman Garrett Graves for partnering with me to invest in rebuilding Louisiana shorelines.”
