A major milestone in the effort to save Louisiana's coast.
Today both the state house and senate unanimously passed the 2012 coastal master plan.
This plan looks fifty years ahead.
The goal is to try and turn back the tide of relentless land loss plaguing the state.
Every five years, the state puts out a new master plan.
However these large projects will require billions of dollars.
This latest plan requires fifty billion.
There are two sources of money coming in, one being offshore oil royalties.
Those will come to the state in a few years.
The other potential oil-spill related fines, those could be anywhere from five to twenty billion dollars total.
