07/08 - Louisiana’s Children: A Future at Risk (Encore Edition)

How can the government improve the welfare of children in Louisiana?

When it comes to the future of a community or a state, nothing is more important than the welfare of the children - they are the future. By many indicators, Louisiana has not done well by its children. Find out why our state ranks 49th overall in child welfare issues on “Louisiana’s Children: A Future at Risk”. It’s an encore edition of Louisiana Public Square, featuring special guest Darryl McDaniel of Run DMC.

This program was also funded in part by the Louisiana Forestry Association

What concerns are on citizens’ minds as they go to the polls this fall?

The presidential election may be getting all of the attention, but Louisiana residents will be making several important decisions at the ballot box in November. The U.S. Senate seat left up for grabs by retiring Sen. David Vitter has drawn a field of 24 candidates. Louisianians in the south- and northwest parts of the state will also be voting on congressmen. So, what national concerns are on citizens’ minds as they go to the polls this fall? What statewide issues should be on the mind of Louisiana’s next Congressional leaders?
