Legislative Report, Constitutional Convention, Restore Louisiana



Legislative Report


The Legislature has three weeks left in this regular session and members were hard at work. The Senate passed three of Governor Edwards’ Criminal Justice Reform Bills. How will this change our incarceration rate and will it save any money? Also to help raise revenues, a House committee passed a new, extra seventeen cents Gas Tax. How will it impact drivers and where will the money go? Tune in to get the important details happening at the state Capitol.


Constitutional Convention


Kelly Spires will look into the growing momentum of forming another Constitutional Convention. The last convention took place in 1973, and some people think it’s time for another. Can all sides come together to help solve this state’s problems?


Restore Louisiana


Homeowners affected by the floods that swept Louisiana in March and August are not signing up in sufficient numbers for help using an online survey. The survey is the first step in a process to access who will be eligible for the 1.6 billion dollars in recovery money provided by the federal government. Andre Moreau will have an interview with a member of the Restore Louisiana Task Force to find out what can be done to help more citizens.
