A Conversation with Rep. Garret Graves
One of the most important coastal leaders in America.
On this episode of The Capitol Beach, Derek Brockbank interviews Representative Garret Graves. Rep. Graves has a long history working for coastal restoration and resilience, most notably in leading Louisiana's Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority and currently as Congressman. On the podcast, he talks about new laws that allow FEMA money to be spent on Army Corps projects, why investing in resilience should be done before a storm, and how the Army Corps of Engineers is improving and where he'd like to see the Corps go. He also shares why he wanted Cajuns listed as an endangered species and how the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State is like the Coastal Louisiana wetlands.
