Governor John Bel Edwards Interview – Part Two

Governor Edwards recently hit the benchmark of his first 100 days in office. In part two of his conversation with the Governor, Charlie Whinham discusses his executive order that bans LGBT discrimination, his hopes to raise the minimum wage, and on a lighter note, feeding the chickens in the back of the Governor’s Mansion after a long days work.

This Week at the Capitol

Despite a law passed last year laying the framework for medical marijuana in Louisiana, advocates say patients who need the drug have yet to find relief. Proponents are back at the State Capitol hoping to iron out some kinds. Capitol reporter Kelly Spires has the details. SHARE

French Immersion Programs in Louisiana

A pair of major announcements took place over the past two weeks on the topic of French Immersion. Rougon Elementary in Point Coupee Parish is the latest school to be added to the list of French Immersion Schools in Louisiana. Meanwhile LPB, the Council for Development of French in Louisiana (CODOFIL) and Groupe Media TFO (Television française de l’Ontario) have partnered to bring French Language children’s programming to LPB2 for the Francophones and future Francophones across Louisiana.
