Jindal Wants Government To Step Up Testing Of Seafood Samples

KENNER, La. (AP) - Gov. Bobby Jindal wants the federal
government to step up testing of seafood samples from Louisiana
waters so they can be quickly reopened to commercial fishing.
The state opened the areas for sport fishing on Thursday. But on
Monday, Jindal and Louisiana seafood industry leaders complained
that the Food and Drug Administration is too slow to test the
samples.
Jindal held a news conference at a Kenner seafood processing
plant that is running out of inventory because of the Gulf of
Mexico oil spill.
