URGENT! FERRY ACTION NEEDED: SENATE FINANCE COMMITTEE TO MEET ON THURSDAY

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 The 2013 Legislative Session is scheduled to end on June 6 and funding for the Reserve/Edgard Ferry remains cut from the 2013-2014 budget. The Louisiana Senate Finance Committee will meet tomorrow, Thursday, May 29, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. in the Senate Committee Meeting Room A & B where House Bill 1 and transportation including the Reserve/Edgard ferry will be discussed. Attendance at the Louisiana State Capitol in Baton Rouge from St. John the Baptist Parish residents and ferry users would speak volumes to the legislation. Outreach to the Louisiana Senators is critical in order for ferry services to continue in St. John the Baptist Parish. Anyone not able to visit the capitol tomorrow is encouraged to call and or email the Senate Finance Committee to urge them to work together to restore funding for the Reserve/Edgard ferry in the 2013/2014 state budget.
