Louisiana: The State We’re In

Louisiana: The State We’re In
»»» Tonight at 7:00 on LPB

Should K-12 teachers be allowed to carry weapons to school? In the wake of school shootings around the country, one state lawmaker thinks it’s a good idea but his bill was met with tough opposition. Hear the debate over House Bill 707 plus the fight to cut spending of state consulting contracts which the state treasurer claims would generate millions of dollars for higher education. Shauna Sanford has LPB’s weekly recap. The future of Louisiana’s military bases are being threatened once again as the federal government reviews which bases should be shutdown. Fort Polk Army base, Barksdale Air Force base and the Belle Chase Naval Station are all on the table. More than 350 past closures by the Base Realignment and Closure Commission (or BRAC), has led to the emergence of political groups like Barksdale Forward and Fort Polk Progress. As part of this year’s McLeod Lecture Series, Shauna Sanford takes a look at what impact they are having in the fight to save Louisiana’s military installations. Just how common is autism? The Centers for Disease Control identify one in 68 children on the autism spectrum, which is a ten-fold increase over the last 40 years. Dr. Rani Whitfield is in the studio with LPB’s monthly segment “Prescription for Health.”
