News For Wednesday 04/23/14


News for Wednesday 042314

By Dave Graichen

 

A survey released by two pro-voucher groups shows 92-percent of the  parents who have children participating in the state's voucher program  are satisfied and happy with their child's academic progress. The state's voucher program, also called the Louisiana Scholarship  program, uses state funding to send children, from low income families  attending poorly performing public schools, to an approved private  school. 87-hundred students have already been awarded  a scholarship for next school year.

 

The  town  of Washington in St. Landry Parish has been called out on the high number  of  tickets  they've  been  writing on I-49. So, in response,  a  bill  was introduced authored by Shreveport  Rep  Alan Seabaugh that only allows  cities  to  write  speeding tickets on an interstate  if more than a half-mile of the interstate  is  in  town limits.   That   bill   passed  on  an  11-to-5  vote.  It now goes to the House floor.

 

The  hot  button  bill  by New Orleans Senator JP Morrell that would lessen marijuana penalties  in  Louisiana  is no more. SB 323, which says anyone charged with pot possession could  get  no  more  than 6 months  in  jail  and  a $100 fine on every offense, was deferred in committee. The matter is essentially dead for the session.

 

A bill that would  ban  employers  from discriminating who they hire based on sexual orientation or gender  identity is also done for the session. Representative Karen St. Germain  from  Pierre  Part pulled the legislation because she knew there wouldn't be enough  votes  to pass it.

 

Legislation that would increase the maximum sentence to 99 years for those individuals  who  are convicted of manufacturing, distribution or possessing heroin is heading  to the  House.  The full senate approved the measure on a 34-2 vote.

 

A bill requiring dogs to be restrained  in the beds of pickup trucks passes on the House floor  and heads to Senate. The measure by Kenner Representative  Tom  Willmott got a close 53-34 go-ahead vote. He says a dog loose in the back  of a truck that's going 70 on an interstate is extremely unsafe.

 

The massive 5 day Festival International which brings in music and art  lovers from all over the world, kicks off today in Lafayette. Kelly Strenge with the Lafayette Convention and Visitors Bureau says this is a multicultural festival that draws thousands. Strenge says they are expecting between 300 to 350 thousand people to  attend the festival through the weekend. You can get more  information at festivalinternational.com.

 

Supporters to expand Medicaid coverage will rally on the state capitol  steps this morning. Alma Stewart, Louisiana Center for Health Equity,  says the rally will urge legislators to vote for a bill that would allow  voters to decide if the state should accept federal dollars to expand health care  coverage for an estimated 240-thousand low-income Louisiana adults....

 

The man from Bossier accused  of  murdering his wife in November has been found competent to stand trial. That word came down yesterday about the case where fifty-three year-od Robert  Bond  allegedly killed his wife Annie, dumped her body in Webster Parish, then left the state.

 

Two  police  officers  from  Eunice  who chose not to assist another officer  involved  in a fight have been  arrested.   Officers  Tayla Fruge and Jade Weaver  were charged with malfeasance, and were place on administrative leave,  this is pending an investigation by the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's

office.
