Business Journal: Mr. Kline goes to Washington, pushing for more offshore drilling money for Louisiana

The chairman of Louisiana’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority is scheduled to testify Thursday before a Congressional committee in support of legislation that would give coastal states a greater share of revenues generated by offshore drilling activity in the Gulf of Mexico.

CPRA Board Chair Chip Kline will testify before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, which is considering a bill sponsored by Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy that would increase the share of offshore drilling revenues that goes to coastal states under the GOMESA program.
