U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy joined 'Acadiana's Morning News' today to talk about current events.

He told Bernadette Lee about a new story from Fox Business that really made him happy. The new item details how benefits and pay have gone up considerably for workers.

Cassidy says that news is great, and he is also positive about the indicators that are suggesting that Louisiana's oil and gas industry is slowly improving in Acadiana and beyond.

The Senator also spoke about another good piece of news and that's the fact that there has been an extension to funding for the National Flood Insurance Program.
