State Workers Health Care Changes, LPB American Graduate Day, Varsity, Inc.: The Business of College Sports

State Workers Health Care Changes (04:20) Next month is the open enrollment period for state workers to decide on a health insurance plan provided by the Office of Group Benefits. Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said the plans may not be legal because the Jindal Administration did not allow sufficient time for public comment and legislative review. The Louisiana House of Representatives scheduled a special public meeting on the matter. Charlie Whinham will have the latest. SHARE

Varsity, Inc.: The Business of College Sports (12:51) How big is the business of college sports in Louisiana? Should student-athletes receive compensation for their efforts? Expenditures in big-time college sports grew nearly twice as much as spending on academics. This month’s Louisiana Public Square explores the future of college sports in Louisiana and across the country. SHARE
