Who are We?

Breaux Act: History

My name is G. Tyler Rumph, I am a senior Environmental Studies major at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. For our senior seminar class we were required to research, write about, and create this web page based on an environmental topic of interest related to coastal wetland loss in Louisiana. Because of my interest in law and policy, I chose to examine the premier federal legislation to date addressing this issue and a few of the projects it has successfully funded.

This web site is intended to give students embarking on the LUCE semester some background information about the problem they will have direct contact with when they spend three weeks in coastal Louisiana. I hope, of course that other interested individuals find my web site useful and public feedback would be greatly appreciated. I can be reached via e-mail at rumphg@dickinson.edu.
