Should any of the projected $6.7B dollars that Louisiana anticipates be used for the general funds now that the BP oil spill settlement has been agreed upon, subject to court approval?
The Louisiana State budget under Governor Bobby Jindal that went into effect on July 1 was $1.6B in the hole until the legislature raised over $700B in taxes on businesses. Future projections for state budgets are between one and two billion dollars per year.
Is Louisiana dragging its feet now that the US Supreme Court has issued its ruling in same sex marriage?
The State of Louisiana has issued a statement today concerning the US Supreme Court decision, however, the representative representing the Equality Louisiana, a gay-advocacy group is somewhat puzzled. Here is the statement from the DHH, the Department of Health and Hospitals under Governor Bobby Jindal:
On Wednesday night, hours after the big event, Former Louisiana State Official Jim Brown and Monroe News-Star (Gannet) Greg Hilburn engaged in a google hangout phone conference with Bayoubuzz Publisher Stephen Sabludowsky, to discuss Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's presidential campaign announcement.

SABLUDOWSKY: There's a big night here in Louisiana--Gov. Jindal has entered the presidential ring, so Greg, why don't you give us an idea as to what happened? You were down there. Go ahead please.

Clout takes a big hit
Poof! That’s what happened to Louisiana’s clout in Congress when Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu lost her Senate seat to Republican Bill Cassidy.
The tornado was part of a line of severe thunderstorms that moved across Louisiana late Monday night and Tuesday.
The EF-1 tornado — one of the weakest designations — damaged the roofs of the Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts, the Southeast Telecom, Inc. building and a fire station across the street, the weather service said.
"We are very fortunate that it appears there are no injuries," Kenner Mayor Michael Yenni said in a news release.
Not the kind of news you would want to hear or read about as Mothers Day nears.
But, here goes.
