Since 1969, the U.S. government has laid claim to roughly 200 acres of land around Lake Bistineau. Wednesday, Senator Bill Cassidy took a step toward ensuring ownership of that land returns to private citizens living on the land.

Cassidy (R-LA) introduced a bill called the Lake Bistineau Land Title Stability Act in the summer of 2017, and the bill went before a subcommittee hearing Wednesday. According to a press release on Cassidy’s website, the bill would “clarify the ownership of roughly 200 acres of land near Lake Bistineau in Louisiana that is currently occupied by more than 100 private landowners.”
