NEW ORLEANS (AP) - President Barack Obama's adviser on environmental issues says the White House will do a complete review of coastal restoration projects in south Louisiana and try to get
the work moving more quickly.
Nancy Sutley, the chairwoman of the White House's Council on Environmental Quality, says the Obama administration understands the need for urgency.
Sutley made her comments Thursday during a visit to a proposed coastal restoration site in New Orleans.
She said the administration would conduct a review of coastal restoration projects within months to determine which should become priorities.
