Louisiana Lieutenant Governor Shares The State Of The State and What YOU Can Do To Help. The images from the BP Oil spill are still fresh in the minds of Americans and with the upcoming one year anniversary upon us, it is important to note where does the state of the gulf stand today? There are still many questions and a lot of misperceptions about the event. Is seafood is safe to eat? Are the beaches clean? Will traveling to the area be interrupted with the clean up efforts? Louisiana specifically, known for its fascinating history, iconic music, decadent food and vibrant culture continues to inspire and is even more alive today than ever before. Listed as one of the top 10 destinations in the world and boasting more than 400 festivals a year including the upcoming infamous Mardi Gras celebration, this is the perfect time to celebrate how far the state has come. From its pristine National State parks and beaches, to its rich musical history that continues to inspire, entertain and contribute to a vibrant creole culture, a trip to Louisiana can be experienced without any interference from the clean up efforts and now is the time to experience the wonder of it all for yourself! Available video includes interview with Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne and b-roll.
