Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and 2016 presidential candidate, has asked that some of the funds from the BP oil spill settlement be used to pay for a $350 million bridge that connects Port Furchon with Golden Meadows.

The vote at Louisiana’s Coastal Protection Restoration Authority has postponed the vote as several members in the authority objected to the proposal.

The money Jindal seeks would be redirected from any surplus left after completion of more than $700 million in coastal restoration and other work funded by the federal Restore Act, according to the resolution the authority considered during its meeting in Morgan City.
