BATON ROUGE- U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) toured flood recovery efforts in the Baton Rouge area today with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson. Sec. Carson was invited to Louisiana by Sen. Kennedy to visit areas of Louisiana that were impacted by the historic flooding a year ago.
“I would like to thank Sec. Carson and his wife, Candy, for accepting my invitation to come down to Louisiana to tour the flood damage and witness firsthand the efforts being made by local, state, and federal officials to recover, fully, from the devastating flood last year,” said Sen. Kennedy. “It is imperative that we continue to work together, both at the local and national level, to make sure our communities have every avenue available to rebuild stronger than ever.”
