BATON ROUGE, La. (WDSU) — Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser sent a letter to President Trump Friday expressing his concern for the economic sustainability of Louisiana’s and the Gulf Coast’s seafood industries.
President Donald J. Trump recently signed a memorandum earlier this week calling on the U.S. Department of Agriculture to make subsidies available to Maine lobstermen due to hardships.
