Good Morning

With the beginning of the second special legislative session, LFC has released a new television advertisement featuring parents asking legislators to fully fund the Louisiana Scholarship Program. View the commercial here: http://giveparentschoice.org. And please share on social media!

The Manship School News Service reports the 2016 legislative sessions are combining to be the longest in the state’s history. It will have encompassed 19 consecutive weeks, the longest weekly stretch in the legislative branch’s 204-year history. If the second special session continues through its June 23 deadline, the sessions will have spanned three seasons of the year. http://bit.ly/1TXmws5
