Quote of the week


  "I believe that we are witnessing a complete disregard of the Legislative branch's powers by this administration and must address this immediately or we shall find ourselves completely left out of the budget process." — State Rep. Jerome "Dee" Richard, I-Thibodeaux, in an open letter to his colleagues calling for a special session of the Legislature to address Gov. Bobby Jindal's budget cuts. Richard added, "I fully understand that convening and conducting a special session will not be easy, but think about the cuts that our hospitals and universities are having to make and will continue to be forced to make while we, as local elected representatives, sit back and try to defend those cuts that we know nothing about."
