As police and community relations in Charlotte, North Carolina, are rocked by a questioned shooting, a Louisiana task force began work on recommendations governing law enforcement body cameras. They started out questioning dependability.
Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne said last week the state is expecting a shortfall of between $200-million and $300-million for the fiscal year that ended June 30th. Those moneys will have to be made up out of this year’s already over-committed state revenues -- something that worries Louisiana Health Secretary Dr. Rebekah Gee.
When the administration said no to his requests for more money last month, Attorney General Jeff Landry didn’t like the answer, so he took his grievance to the legislature’s Joint Budget Committee last Friday.
