LAYFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Organizers expect a big turnout at a
rally to oppose the drilling moratorium in the Gulf of Mexico.
The rally, scheduled for Wednesday morning at the Lafayette
Cajundome, is expected to draw 15,000 to 20,000 people wanting to
show concern about the halt of deepwater oil well drilling imposed
by the Obama administration.
Opponents claim the moratorium has "brought economic recovery
in Louisiana and along the Gulf Coast" to a standstill.
