The Honorable Garret Graves
Louisiana’s 6th District

Last Congress, Congressman Graves chaired the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment and was instrumental in the development, passage and enactment of a range of policy wins on rivers, levees, flood protection, coastal issues and Corps of Engineers reforms. He also brought about critical upgrades to federal disaster response and recovery programs, streamlining FEMA operations, creating faster recoveries and helping make communities across the nation more resilient to disaster.
In his short time in office, Congressman Graves and his team have established a record of advancing Louisiana’s priorities through Congress. Congressman Graves’ leadership on transportation, infrastructure, energy, maritime, fisheries, coastal restoration, disaster and other issues critical to Louisiana’s economy and way of life are an asset in Congress.
