Governor Blanco continues fight for Louisiana's fair share of recovery dollars
Did you see the State of the Union last night? I did, and was surprised and disappointed that the President had nothing to say about the Gulf Coast. He had nothing to say about Louisiana. And he had nothing to say about the massive recovery that still lies before us. Our recovery may be yesterday's news in Washington, but it's very real here at home. Over the past two days I've called attention to Michael Brown and the broken code of silence regarding partisan politics. When our people's lives were in danger, political operatives in the White House were playing politics. Their target was me, but the real victims have been the people of our state.
Governor Blanco calls for universal health insurance to children; Remarks to the 11th Annual Healthcare Conference

Governor Blanco addresses White House criticism and further discusses Michael Brown's revelation
BATON ROUGE-"The White House indignation over Michael Brown's whistle-blowing is very revealing. He has broken the code of silence about the political conspiracy to hurt the people of Louisiana. Their target was me, but the real victims have been the people of our state."
Governor Blanco's Remarks to the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East
Good morning. Today we charge you, the newly appointed members of the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority, with a mission of levee protection. This is perhaps the most serious issue we are facing. Levee board reform marks an historic step forward in our determination to build an integrated coastal restoration and hurricane protection system.
Governor Blanco addresses Louisiana High School Redesign Commission
We're here today to redesign our high schools in order to better prepare all of our students for success. You have important work ahead of you, so I won't take long. I do want to let you know that I'm 100 percent behind high school redesign. I've been closely following your deliberations. Those of us in this room share a common belief. There is nothing more important to the future of Louisiana than a first class education system. Every child deserves the chance to live up to his or her full potential. It's our job to make that chance a reality.
