Legislature&#39;s raise backstep for Louisiana
Louisiana, lagging behind in many categories like education and health care when compared to other states in the nation, will have the highest legislative pay in the southern region and the 14th highest nationwide.
We can’t help but think about residents of the 11th and 12th Districts of the House of Representatives. Their state representatives may well receive more money in this raise than the poorest of those residents make in year.
We find ourselves thinking about Senate District 35, as well, an area with great needs that could benefit from state aid.
