News For Thursday 05/22/14


News for Thursday 052214

By Dave Graichen

 

According to an article in today’s Town Talk, The Fort Buhlow Bridge connecting Alexandria and Pineville won’t be finished this year as had been planned. And it likely won’t be next year either. The opening of the bridge, which will replace the O.K. Allen Bridge, now is projected for January or February 2016. The problem, some very hard clays on the Pineville side, which affected construction of the pier for that side of the bridge. One span of the new bridge should be open by the end of this year or in early 2015.

 

An Alexandria man has been charged with second-degree murder in the slaying of a man Tuesday afternoon at a Monroe Street store in Alexandria. The suspect, 18-year-old Jarvis Jackson is accused of shooting 25 year old Denardo Boyd of Alexandria, about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday in the parking lot of the Save Most store on Monroe Street. No motive has been given.

 

Even though it’s allowed in 40 of our 50 states, Louisiana residents will not be able to purchase raw milk any time soon. The Senate Health and Welfare Committee rejected  the  proposal  yesterday.  Commissioner of Agriculture Mike Strain read the CDC's statement on the matter and as you may suspect, they are not for the change in the law. The bill was shot down on a 4-to1 vote.

 

Governor Jindal says he will sign legislation that could lead to the closure  of  three  of the state's five abortion clinics.  The House gave final legislative passage to a bill that would require abortion

doctors to have admitting  privileges at a nearby hospital. The new rules are similar to a recent law passed in Texas.  The bill received final legislative approval on an 88-5 vote.

 

A House bill that would require a brain dead pregnant woman to be  kept alive under doctors’ orders while the baby develops heads to the upper chamber for final legislative passage.

 

Medicaid expansion efforts died Wednesday for the 2014 legislative session while a plan to test Gov. Bobby Jindal’s national health care plan in Louisiana sailed through the Louisiana Senate. The House Health and Welfare Committee, as expected, killed three separate measures proposing different approaches, including by-passing Gov. Bobby Jindal and letting the voters decide the issue. Later in the day, the Senate voted 35-1 to advance legislation under which the state health agency would develop a health care plan using Jindal’s “America Next” outline.

 

The Louisiana State Police is set to swear in 46 new Troopers today in  Baton Rouge.  This is their first graduating cadet class in five years.  State Police Superintendent Colonel Mike Edmonson says the cadets  went through 19 weeks of training to get here. Edmonson says another Academy class will start in December and if you  are interested, you can register online at lsp.org. 

 

Governor Jindal has signed into law a bill prohibiting speed cameras on Louisiana's  interstates.   The measure by Sulphur Representative Michael Danahay was one of a few  bills  taken  up  this legislative session regarding speed traps and the only one to succeed so far.

 

The Senate gave final legislative passage to a bill prohibiting dogs  from riding unrestrained in the bed of a pickup on the interstate. Under this measure dogs could still ride in the bed of a truck on the

 interstate, but they would have to be humanely secured so they could not  jump out. The vote was 30-to-7 in favor of the bill.  It now awaits the Governor’s signature. 

 

With the rise of heroin deaths in Louisiana  in  the  past year, the Legislature paid attention and passed a bill that would  give judges the  ability  to sentence a second offense of distribution up  to  a

maximum of 99 years.   After  the 27-11 vote, it's on its way to the Governor's desk to be signed. The current law is a 50 year maximum.

 

Welfare recipients would be unable to use their federal benefits at liquor stores, nail salons, bars, cruise ships and psychic businesses under legislation that cleared a Senate committee Wednesday.

The Senate Committee on Health and Welfare also tackled food stamp recipients. The panel advanced legislation that would cut off grocery assistance for Tangipahoa Parish residents without small children unless they seek an education or job training.

 

An attempt to establish guidelines for the Tulane legislative scholarship program in state law ran into a dead end Wednesday. The Louisiana House and Governmental Affairs Committee voted 6-1 to reject a state Senate-passed measure putting the scholarships off-limits to certain elected officials and their relatives and requiring transparency over the awarding of the $46,000-a-year scholarships controlled by legislators.

 

A bill allowing active duty and retired law enforcement officials to carry  a  gun  in  almost  all  public  places  is  now awaiting the Governor's signature.  The measure does not apply to courthouses and

officers  would  be subject to individual regulations set  by  their department.   The bill passed on an 81-11 vote.

 

In  the  SEC  tournament yesterday, LSU pounded Vanderbilt  11-1, setting up their second game against the Arkansas Razorbacks this afternoon.  the Razorbacks took out Ole Miss by a score of 2-1. Airtime 4 this afternoon. First pitch 4:30. 

 

The House Criminal Justice Committee has passed a measure that would allow the Department of  Corrections  to  have the ability to search for  alternative methods to carry out capital  punishments,  if  the drugs for lethal  injections cannot be found.  The bill sponsored by Metairie Representative Joe Lopinto now moves to the House floor for debate.
