WGNO: New Orleans Restaurants And Council Members Jump Into The Fray To Oppose Formosa Plastic Plant

Opposition to a proposed plastic manufacturing complex in St. James Parish is growing in New Orleans.

Citing the interrelated concerns of harm to local waterways, fisheries and tourism, two City Council members are set to introduce a resolution this week opposing the construction of the Sunshine Project by FG LA LLC, a subsidiary of Taiwanese chemical giant Formosa Plastics. And now New Orleans restaurant group Dickie Brennan & Co. is offering support of the measure.
