Breaux Act Newsflash - James Carville to Deliver Keynote Address at Banquet Honoring Louisiana's Coastal Stewards

Breaux Act Newsflash - James Carville to Deliver Keynote Address at Banquet Honoring Louisiana's Coastal Stewards

Baton Rouge (May 11, 2010) - On Wednesday June 9, 2010, the Coalition to
Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) will recognize nine award recipients as
outstanding stewards of Louisiana's coast at the fifteenth annual Coastal
Stewardship Awards Banquet to be held at the Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol
Center, Baton Rouge, LA beginning at 6:00 p.m. We are pleased to have
James Carville as the evening's keynote speaker.

The Coastal Stewardship Awards program is sponsored by CRCL to recognize
significant contributions by an individual or group in the effort to save
Louisiana's coast. This year's recipients have demonstrated an
exceptional commitment to the preservation and restoration of Louisiana's
fragile coast, and we congratulate them for their outstanding

At a time when many residents in South Louisiana and along the Gulf Coast
are struggling to respond to the BP Oil Spill, we believe the Coastal
Stewardship Awards Banquet is an appropriate time to draw attention to the
challenges facing our coast and to celebrate the tremendous contributions
that individuals and organizations can make to restoring and protecting
coastal Louisiana.

CRCL is pleased to announce that James Carville, America's best-known
political consultant, will be the keynote speaker at the 2010 Coastal
Stewardship Awards Banquet. A Louisiana native, Mr. Carville returned home
in 2008 and has been a strong voice for coastal protection and restoration
on a national scale. Mr. Carville's experience includes a long list of
electoral successes, a knack for steering overlooked campaigns to
unexpected landslide victories and for re-making political underdogs into
upset winners.

James Carville is an author, actor, producer, talk-show host, speaker and
restaurateur. Most recently, Carville is hosting Sirius XM radio's "60/20
Sports" show with Luke Russert, and is a frequent political commentator
and contributor on CNN. He also serves as a Professor of Practice at
Tulane University in New Orleans, where he lives with his wife Mary
Matalin and their two daughters.

The Coastal Stewardship Awards program will take place on the second
evening of the State of the Coast Conference. Conference attendees are
welcome to attend, but must register and pay separately for the Coastal
Stewardship Awards. The program begins at 6:00 p.m. and is open to
members of the public who have reserved tickets in advance. The evening
consists of a reception, banquet dinner and keynote address followed by
the presentation of awards. Tickets are available for $50 per person. For
reservations or additional information please contact the Coalition to
Restore Coastal Louisiana at 225-767-4181 or visit our website at
