On Thursday's Louisiana Considered, Adam Vos dives into coastal restoration and the litigation that might help — or plateau — the effort.

He spoke with CEO of the Pelican Institute for Public Policy Daniel Erspamer to hear his doubts about a new proposed system of coastal credits proposed by the Freeport McMoRan settlement.

Then, we hear from Christopher Dalbom, assistant director of the Institute on Water Resources Law and Policy at Tulane University, for his take on litigation as a recovery method.

Adam is responsible for coordinating WRKF's programming and making sure everything you hear on the radio runs smoothly. He is also the voice of Baton Rouge's local news every afternoon during All Things Considered.
Aubry is a reporter, producer and operations assistant in Baton Rouge.
