UPDATE: Special Session

The Regular Session ended yesterday as the Governor and the Senate stalled the House Republicans’ fiscally responsible plan that would lower the amount of a projected $1 billion budget shortfall.

These types of political games have gotten us where we are in this state. And for the record – this Republican …

My statement on the removal of monuments in New Orleans and our priorities as a state and society. We need to focus on the real problems plaguing Louisiana, like reckless spending, over taxation, rising crime, poor public education, and a crumbling infrastructure, just to name a few. Taking down a monument or statue does nothing to fix these problems.
