11/16- Beyond the Flood

What lessons did residents and state officials learn from this historic event and what challenges remain?

The August floodwaters that inundated South Louisiana have receded and the recovery continues. What lessons did residents and state officials learn from this historic event and what challenges remain? What federal aid is still available for homeowners and renters and how should the state disburse it? How can the state help to ensure that poor and affluent neighborhoods recover equally? What impact should the floods have on building standards, mitigation and prevention? And could jumpstarting stalled diversion projects prevent a similar disaster in the future? WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2016

Our Panelists:

We want to know your opinion! Leave your comments in the box below.

They are completely avoiding the topic of how to avoid flood in the future,
such as removing the I-12 barrier, and finishing the Comite diversion project. 
Very disappointing.

Current Topic

     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.)
