BAYOU CORNE - Gov. Jindal will not visit the Bayou Corne sinkhole next week, according to his press secretary.

Sean Lansing said Friday that Jindal is scheduled to meet with officials from Assumption Parish and state agency directors on Monday to see what more can be done for people affected by the sinkhole. That meeting will take place in Baton Rouge.

Residents displaced since August have criticized the governor for never actually traveling to see the sinkhole or speak with displaced families.

Jindal said he gets constant updates from state agencies overseeing response efforts and has pledged to hold Houston-based Texas Brine accountable for the damage and to make sure people are compensated for their losses.
