SB200 to be Reconsidered

Thank you Senators who voted to protect the Chicot aquifer and the safety of the 4,000 people that live around Lake Peigneur. To those Senators who voted against it, there is nothing to say.

Senator Mills showed a video of what happened to Lake Peigneur and the surrounding area in 1980. Senator Ardley very coldly questioned Senator Mills about the video, and more or less said what does this video have to do with protecting Lake Peigneur and areas around it today.
SB 200 BY MILLS Failed 15 by 20 votes

Five (5) members of the Natural Resources Committee voted yea.

Two (2) members of the Natural Resources Committee voted nay.

The Natural Resources Committee members were all told of the problems with the Chicot aquifer if the expansion takes place.

These members were all told of the bubbling in Lake Peigneur and the cause is not known.

SB 200 was passed out of the Natural Resources Committee, but failed in the Senate.

Most of the Senators who voted nay do use the Chicot aquifer, and are not concerned about the safety of people that live in the area of Lake Peigneur.

Below is how the Senate voted.
