June is upon us, bringing with it the things we love about summer in South Louisiana: longer days, snowballs, cicadas buzzing in the background and maybe a family trip to the beach.
Federal government failures impact each one of us. This was the topic of a recent discussion I led at the Association of Levee Boards of Louisiana held its 31st Annual Workshop.
