WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) announced today that Southern University in Baton Rouge will receive $5.6 million to improve drainage to help protect the campus’ electrical hub and roads from erosion and flooding. Much of the three-year project will focus on areas around F and H streets.
“Sadly, our public universities in Louisiana are suffering from tremendous neglect,” said Sen. Kennedy. “This money from FEMA will make Southern University safer for students and faculty.”
