Legislative Wrap


Lawmakers are busy at the capitol as the legislative session wraps up in a little over a week. A house committee voted to kill a lawsuit by the Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East that was suing 97 oil and gas companies for environmental damages. One abortion bill passed by the full house could lead to the closure to three of five abortion clinics in the state. And, will a ten percent cut across the board on consulting contracts help the state budget? Charlie Whinham recaps the week at the capitol.



In Depth with Reps. Lambert and Williams


Rep. Eddie Lambert (R-Gonzales) and Rep. Alfred Williams (D-Baton Rouge) are in the studio to discuss the latest activities at the capitol and what lies ahead in the final days of the legislative session.



Three Cheers for “Penu” Green


As a tribute to this Memorial Day weekend, we share a story LPB first aired last fall. What began as a 12-year-old girl’s request to see her grandfather’s gravesite revealed the story of a WWII hero. Marine Cpl. James W. Green died in 1974 and he was a member of the Montford Point Marines. Charlie Whinham explains how a Louisiana family uncovered Green’s heroic story that would end with receiving the Congressional Gold Medal, the nation’s highest civilian honor.
