La. levee project with ballooning price tag seen as linchpin in WRDA talks

Lawmakers desperate to pass the first water resources bill in seven years are facing a $10.3 billion problem. That's the latest price tag for the 98-mile-long "Morganza to the Gulf" levee and hurricane protection project championed by the Louisiana delegation for their state's offshore oil and gas hub near the city of Houma. The southeast Louisiana project was included in the Senate's Water Resources Development Act passed in May, but it wasn't in the version passed by the House two weeks ago.
