La. Speaks is Already on the Job

The La. Speaks team is already rolling on several key action items.

Coordinating Regional Plan Implementation with Protection and Restoration Plans
(see LSRP, p. 36)
La. Speaks is working to ensure that the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) Master Plan and Annual Plans shape La. Speaks Regional Plan initiatives and projects, and the La. Speaks team is involving the CPRA leadership in frequent reviews.
à Status: La. Speaks plans and projects are reviewed for consistency with CPRA plans, and La. Speaks works closely with CPRA leadership as relevant plans and projects are rolled forward.

Supporting Local Recovery Plans, including New Orleans’s (see LSRP, p. 39)
The La. Speaks team, which includes the LRA, is working to ensure that the implementation of the New Orleans Recovery Plan and other parish recovery plans are supported through the La. Speaks Regional Plan. This includes La. Speaks/LRA support for road and rail projects that support regional economic growth, funding through federal sources that support local recovery efforts, and support for local grant writers and administrators.
à Status: This work is underway through the LRA.

Extending the Regional Plan to include North and Central Louisiana (see LSRP, p. 84)
The La. Speaks team is working with community leaders in Central and North Louisiana to extend this successful regional planning effort. This “phase two” of La. Speaks will reflect the unique challenges and characteristics of the northern half of the state. Upon its completion, Louisiana will have a consolidated state plan for the first time.
à Status: The La. Speaks team has been meeting with leaders in North and Central Louisiana, who intend to begin organizing and leading “phase two” work.

Legislative Accomplishments

A number of action items outlined in the La. Speaks Regional Plan were accomplished during the 2007 Session of the Legislature. Some were spearheaded by the La. Speaks team, while others were the good work of allied efforts.

Adopting and Funding the CPRA Master Plan and Annual Plans (see LSRP, pp. 34-5)
SCR 11 and SCR 12 accomplished the first priorities listed in the La. Speaks Regional Plan—adoption of the CPRA Master Plan and its initial Annual Plan. Partial dedicated funding now exists through combined state and federal sources.

Developing of an Office of State Planning (see LSRP, pp. 86-7)
HCR 229 established a study committee to recommend to the 2008 Legislature how to set up an Office of State Planning consistent with the La. Speaks Regional Plan.

Abolishing the Insurance Rating Commission (see LSRP, pp. 36)
Louisiana was the only state that still had an Insurance Rating Commission (IRC). It was widely seen as an impediment to insurers working in Louisiana. Act 459 abolished it.

Developing a State Coastal Land Trust (see LSRP, pp. 59)
SCR 95 established a study committee to recommend to the 2008 Legislature how to set up State Coastal Land Trust, which partially fulfills the Regional Plan’s recommendation to set up a Conservation and Mitigation Trust Fund.

Providing Incentives for Alternative Energy Systems (see LSRP, pp. 64)
Act 371 of 2007 Regular Legislative Session established tax incentives for the construction of alternative energy systems, including wind and solar.

Maintaining the State Uniform Construction Code (see LSRP, pp. 34)
HCR 63, which would have suspended the new, stronger Uniform Construction Code for Louisiana, was tabled.

Establishing a world-class academic medical center in downtown New Orleans
(see LSRP, p. 44)
HCR 126 approved a business plan that allows access to $300 million allotted by the state for the construction of a new facility that will provide services to Medical Center of Louisiana in New Orleans, Veteran’s Administration Medical Center and Louisiana State, Tulane and Xavier Universities.

These choices help men who have erectile dysfunction while letting them not
spend as much on medication. Nevertheless, if a guy is anxious regarding his
privacy and any uncomfortable scenarios that can happen, he can decide to buy
Cialis online instead. In addition to total creatine kinase and
