Livingston Parish faces an interesting conundrum in the upcoming years. The debate will center around one question -- were we ready?
For what, you may ask? Growth.
As lawmakers descend upon Baton Rouge for a special session, called by Gov. John Bel Edwards to address the $1.6 billion fiscal cliff, it will be interesting to see how many deals get made during that time ... if any, as today’s political landscape favors the power brokers over compromise.

LAFAYETTE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry, with the support of Congressman Garret Graves, announced a lawsuit today against the Corps of Engineers.
"The decline of Louisiana's coastline over the past 50 years has been a constant issue for Louisiana," said General Landry. "Unfortunately, the creation of the Intracoastal Waterway by the Corps has exasperated the problem."
The White House's proposed budget takes the ax to a wide range of domestic programs, but unlike in past years, federal oil money that funds Louisiana's coastal restoration efforts isn't on the chopping block.
Both President Donald Trump and his predecessor, Barack Obama, proposed tearing up an agreement that sends a share of federal royalties from offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico with the coastal states of Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi and Alabama.
Washington, DC – Congressman Garret Graves (R-South Louisiana) advanced bipartisan legislation this week that would simplify an important – but archaic – process Americans endure to authorize their elected representatives to step in when FEMA, the Social Security Administration, the IRS, Medicare, the VA and other agencies of the federal bureaucracy aren’t providing the level of customer service citizens deserve.

BATON ROUGE, La. (LOCAL 33) (FOX 44) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers failed to protect Louisiana's coastline, state Attorney General Jeff Landry charged in a federal lawsuit filed Friday.
The suit claims the Corps' mismanagement of the Intracoastal Waterway, first authorized in the 1920s, has cost Louisiana thousands of acres of land. The state provided a servitude that limited the Corps to 300 feet of land use, to build and maintain the waterway. Under federal oversight, the channel has expanded up to 900 feet wide in certain locations, Landry said.
