06/10 - Healthcare Reform: A Louisiana Perspective (ENCORE SHOWING)

Are you satisfied with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act?

While President Barack Obama signed health care reform legislation into law on March 30th, the debate over the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act continues. Louisiana is one of 20 states suing the federal government over the constitutionality of the bill. This month Louisiana Public Square has an encore broadcast of “Health Care Reform: A Louisiana Perspective”, winner of the Louisiana State Medical Society’s 2009 Award for Excellence in Medical Journalism. Revisit concerns and opinions that are still relevant today.

     03/18 - Making Schools Safe

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion?
The school shooting in Broward County Florida that took the lives of 17 people has reignited the debate over how to make our schools safe. Energized students nationwide are calling for restricted access to certain guns. Congress is considering broader background checks and age limits on gun purchases. President Donald Trump is most enthusiastic about training school staff members to carry concealed weapons.

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion? How would gun control proposals affect the 45% of Louisianans who own guns? What mental health services are available to prevent teenagers from acting out violently? What increased security measures should schools take and how much will they cost? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Making Schools Safe” airing Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and WLAE in New Orleans. (Taping Tuesday, March 27.)
