In December 2005, the Louisiana State legislature established the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) as the single state entity with the authority to focus development and implementation efforts for comprehensive coastal protection. The Integrated Planning Team (IPT) was created by the CPRA to coordinate development of a coastal protection master plan with state and federal agencies, and political subdivisions (including levee districts).
