Legislative Update, Oil and Budget, Plessy v Ferguson, 2018 Louisiana Legends

Legislative Update Get the latest from the Louisiana Legislature and hear about another upcoming special session called this week by Governor John Bel Edwards. SHARE

Oil and Budget How does the price of oil impact Louisiana and its fiscal cliff? An LSU professor for Energy Studies explains why the oil industry of today is nothing like the industry of the past and how that “new day” affects our state. SHARE

Plessy v Ferguson As the legislature makes progress in overturning the remnants of Louisiana’s Jim Crow laws, we’re reminded of the state’s troubled past. On this date in 1896, the U.S. supreme court issued its opinion in Plessy v Ferguson. The case originated in Louisiana and established the “separate but equal” doctrine that allowed for segregation.
