NEW ORLEANS (AP) — It will be next month before Gov. Bobby Jindal will likely get a chance to change the membership of a South Louisiana flood board that is suing dozens of oil, gas and pipeline companies.

The panel that nominates members for the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East on Thursday put off a vote on applicants to fill two expired terms until September. That gives the panel time to consider an applicant who filed after the application deadline.

One of the expired terms is that of Paul Kemp, a supporter of the lawsuit, which Jindal opposes.

Kemp has re-applied for another term. However, even if he is re-nominated, Jindal would likely replace him with someone who would vote to kill the lawsuit.

Meanwhile, Kemp continues to serve until a successor is named.
