Squire Creek was filled with wigs of many colors, as the second annual Wiggin’ Out commenced on Oct. 11. An event associated with the sixth annual “Bulldogs Tackling Breast Cancer” campaign, the fundraiser attracted hundreds of attendees and raised more than $10,000.
“The show of support at tonight’s event was unbelievable. We were expecting a great turnout, but this by far exceeded what we were hoping for,” said Elizabeth Turnley, director of marketing and physician liaison with the Northern Louisiana Medical Center, one of the fundraiser’s title sponsors. “It was truly a great feeling to watch everyone having a great time while helping raise money for a great cause. This event could not have happened without the generous support of those who attended.”

Amendment No. 3 could impact timeline for filing bills

Editor’s note: The following information was provided by the Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana. It is one in a series of articles by PAR that the Daily Leader will print relating to the proposed Constitutional Amendments on the Nov. 6 ballot. Today’s article focuses on Constitutional Amendment No. 3. Articles may be edited for space.
Legislators who file bills before a regular legislative session must do so no later than 10 calendar days before the first day of the session. This is known as prefiling. Usually, prefiled bills are formally introduced on the first day of a session. A legislator may file five bills during a session and the Legislature’s rules make certain exceptions to allow more. Also, any proposed amendment to the Constitution must be prefiled at least 10 calendar days before the start of a legislative session.
