News For Tuesday 05/27/14


News for Tuesday 052714

By Dave Graichen

 

New numbers from the Louisiana Workforce Commission show the Houma,  Lafayette and Lake Charles metro areas had an unemployment rate below  four-percent in April. LSU economist Loren Scott these areas of the  state are benefiting from a boom in construction, because of new plants that are coming to the state.  But Scott says not all areas of the state are doing well. The Louisiana

Workforce Commission says the Shreveport metro area's unemployment rate  is near five-percent. He says that area of the state is still suffering  from the closure of the General Motors plant in 2012 and cutbacks at Barksdale air force base.  

 

The dean of political journalism  in Louisiana has passed away. John Maginnis, publisher of lapolitics-dot-com, died Sunday at the age of 66.  Maginnis  wrote  political  books,   a  syndicated  column  and

published  a  newsletter  that  provided  an inside  look  at  state government. LSU mass communications professor Bob Mann says Maginnis will be sorely missed. Maginnis started on Louisiana political beat in 1972.

 

Governor Jindal  has  signed  into  law legislation that would allow concealed handgun permit holders to bring  a  gun  into  restaurants that  serve  alcohol,  but make most of their money off food  sales.

Bossier City Representative  Jeff  Thompson  warns concealed handgun holders can have their premit revoked if they  possess  a gun in one of  these  establishments  and have a blood alcohol reading  greater than .05%. Thompson says business owners  will  have the right to prohibit guns

in their restaurant if they choose to do so.

 

The Louisiana Senate Finance Committee reversed many of the changes and adjustments made to the state budget proposal by the state House of Representatives. Yesterday, the committee approved the 25-billion  dollar  spending plan for the upcoming fiscal  year and passed it on to the full senate.

 

Beginning with this year's Atlantic Hurricane season, the National  Hurricane Center will begin issuing a Potential Storm Surge Flooding  Map for areas along the coast at risk of storm surge from a tropical  cyclone.  Storm Surge Leader for the National Hurricane Center Jamie  Rhome says this has been in the works for a while. The maps will predict how deep the water will be above ground and how  far inland the water will go.  They will be available 48 hours prior to  landfall or during the watch and warning phases.  Rhome says the map  will change as a storm approaches the coast.

 

The 2014 legislative session will come to a close Monday.  So, how has  this session been going?  UL-Lafayette Political Science Professor  Pearson Cross says the session has been wandering since the beginning.  1,284 bills have been filed in the House and 685 in the Senate.  Many of  those will not survive.  Of course, some of the biggest bills await  final action in the final days of the session.  Cross says Governor  Jindal has spent quite a bit of time out of state during this session,  which kept major legislation from getting approved this year.

 

The Bayou Country Superfest wrapped up  Sunday night with performances from Louisiana’s own Hunter Hayes and Jason  Aldean.  Organizers  say the  three-day  country music festival  had a record setting turnout of 135-thousand fans.

The NCAA  Baseball Tournament field has been announced.  Eighth seed LSU  will  host  Houston,  Bryant,  and  Southeastern  Louisiana  in regional action.   In  the  Lafayette  Regional,  UL-Lafayette,  the number  six  seed,   will  host  Jackson State, San Diego State, and Mississippi State.  Both regionals kick off Friday.
