07/16 - Regular and Extraordinary: Legislative Review

Who are the winners and losers in Louisiana’s budget battle?

After one regular session and two extraordinary ones, Louisiana’s Legislature has produced a balanced budget, but, at what cost? Who are the winners and losers in this year’s budget battle? And how can the state’s tax structure be reformed to avoid a future budget crisis? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on “Regular & Extraordinary: Legislative Review” Wednesday, July 13 at 7 pm on LPB HD. (Recording Tuesday, July 12)

Current Topic


     05/17 - Reforming Criminal Justice

Should alternatives to prison be used for criminals charged with non-violent offenses?
Louisiana is the prison capital of the world. Its incarceration rate is nearly double the rest of the country. And while Louisiana incarcerates violent offenders at a rate comparable to other southern states, nonviolent offenders are imprisoned at a much higher rate.

A package of bills being proposed this legislative session attacks the mass incarceration problem from a number of angles.

Should alternatives to prison be used for criminals charged with non-violent offenses? Should judges have more flexibility in sentencing? Should the state increase more opportunities for probation and parole? Should Louisiana pay sheriffs less for housing work release inmates? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Reforming Criminal Justice” Wednesday, May 24 at 9 p.m. on LPB HD and in New Orleans on WLAE.
