The in-house Louisiana fight over how to slow the loss of southern Louisiana to gulf water is growing. Some raising private funding claim the state refuses to provide matching funds. The state says they don't have the money. Private citizens point to multi-million dollar studies as proof to the contrary. Does this fight benefit the ultimate goal of state survival? Garland was joined by Capt. George Ricks, President of the Save Louisiana Coalition and Jerome Zerinque, Executive Director of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority.
