This Week at the Capitol, In-depth with Reps. St. Germain and Foil, Don Vappie and Friends

This Week at the Capitol (1:39) Should sex education be taught in public schools? State lawmakers battled out the issue as supporters and opponents made their case for and against it this week at the capitol. Also in the agenda, the push to pay down the multibillion dollars state debt known as the unfunded accrued liability. But it would require charter schools to pay up in a way that they currently are not. Who prevailed? Shauna Sanford will have that story and more in this week’s legislative recap. SHARE

In-depth with Reps. St. Germain and Foil (8:27) Rep. Karen St. Germain (D-Plaquemine) and Rep. Franklin Foil (R-Baton Rouge) share perspectives from both parties on some of the top issues lawmakers are facing and what the last few weeks of the regular session may hold. SHARE

Don Vappie and Friends (19:05) LPB recently premiered “Art Rocks! The Series” that celebrates the flourishing arts scene in Louisiana every weekend. Creole Jazz musician Don Vappie and friends stopped by the studio to play his original blend of music. Vappie was featured in a 2009 PBS documentary “American Creole: New Orleans Reunion.” “Art Rocks! The Series” airs Saturdays at 5:30pm and encores Sundays at 4:00pm. SHARE
