Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves Look Back on Katrina

The ten year anniversary of Katrina is quickly approaching and many state officials remember where they were on the day the devastating storm hit.
Lt. Governor Tate Reeves was state treasurer at the time and remembers discussing recovery plans with Governor Haley Barbour. Looking back over the past ten years of rebuilding, he says the Coast makes progress with each passing day but there’s still much more work to be done. “I was in the office building in Jackson the day of Hurricane Katrina and working with Governor Barbour on the recovery efforts in that first legislative session in less than 30 days after Katrina in which we passed a large number of items that tries to help facilitate a strong recovery for our Gulf Coast. I think if you look at what’s going on here, the leadership here has done phenomenal work we’ve made tremendous progress.”
He says that while the Coast has moved forward tremendously, he believes there’s still work to be done on things like insurance prices.
