In addition to pushing for more visits to New Orleans, the women want more oil and gas revenue sharing dedicated to coastal restoration. Louisiana loses about 25 square miles of coast a year. The erosion loss over the years has been compared to the state of Delaware.

[Anne Milling] is the wife of King Milling, who serves as the chairman of governor's Advisory Commission for Coastal Restoration. She also noted that 30 percent of the nation's seafood is caught on Louisiana's coast. "While we are feeding the country, we are washing away," Anne Milling said.
