Jindal Orders Nat'l Guard to Build Barrier

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has told the National Guard to start building barrier walls nine miles off shore -- a measure intended to keep the Gulf oil spill from reaching his sate's coast by coverring the gaps between barrier islands, according to a report by ABC News.

Meanwhile,  the cost of the ambitious project is being accounted for in preparation for presenting a bill to BP.
