Whose land would Louisiana be extorting profits from?
Blanco wants 50% of the royalties paid on offshore federal lands. Subsea lands, of course, but the point is that they are 100% federal property. State waters end at varying points offshore, and the state gets all the royalties from state water tracts.
That ain't enough for Blanco. She wants 50% ownership of Federal tracts, too, and unbelievably there are people here supporting that.

I think it would be great if Louisiana could get 50% of the royalties, if Texas gets them also. And AK,MS,AL,etc,also
