Members of several environmental and health groups gathered in the lobby of Gov. John Bel Edwards’ office on Wednesday, protesting the Bayou Bridge Pipeline project and asking him to at least do an environmental impact study.
Today, a broad base of Louisiana advocacy groups opposed to the Bayou Bridge Pipeline, represented by the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), invoked public records laws to force Bayou Bridge LLC to make its records, including internal communications, available to the public.
Environmental groups are demanding that builders of the proposed Bayou Bridge Pipeline turn over project records, including internal company communications, arguing that they are subject to release under Louisiana's public records law.
Louisiana groups say they are fed up with environmental destruction wreaked by the oil industry and that in the very least the state should allow a third-party assessment of what’s at stake before a proposed pipeline is allowed to be built.
