Sure a Legislative Session is dry news and uninteresting. Some will say it's not as much fun to follow as a tug-of-war between Mayor and Council or following up on an any number of "rank rumors" but it is our future, and we have no choice but to stand at attention.
Louisiana blogger/podcaster Emily Metzger gives this warning...
"So, just a heads-up before you convene on Monday: The time for goat shows, lawnmower races, sweetheart deals for beloved family members, unnoticed vote changes, term-limit evasion, and lip service to vagaries like “reform” is over."
And Louisiana State University Shreveport political science professor Jeff Sadow has the good the bad and the ugly of pre-filed legislation, which I might add, includes several pieces from our own central Louisiana crew.
So what say you? What legislation are you following and do you have any suggestions for your local media on how to cover this "dry" yet essential piece of state news? We're listening.
