The article focuses on the 2008 energy and water appropriations bill which is vital for the state of Louisiana. It notes that the state's port exports 51 million tons of cargo each year and has been the gateway of the nation's energy infrastructures that produce America's oil and natural gas and about 20 percent of total oil imports. On the other hand, the legislation will fund $472 million for flood control, navigation and coastal restoration programs for the state's most important ports.
