Tech, GSU send state cut plans

Dan Reneau, Louisiana Tech president, said the university was preparing its plan for transfer to Baton Rouge on Tuesday afternoon. He said the report summarizes the effects of the cuts over almost all of the university.
He did not release details of the cuts to individual colleges within the university, personnel trimming or other data, waiting for a meeting next week in Baton Rouge where the ULS will present all of the data for its member universities to the state.

New law would crack down on drunk driving

The governor and others say the current law encourages suspects to refuse the tests.
Under current law, those who take a breathalyzer for the first time and fail get a driver’s license suspension for two years. Drivers who refuse the test for the first time face a license suspension of six months.

Landrieu lauds broadband

“This is something the state needs to get a grip on as soon as possible to get a competitive interest with others,” Landrieu said. “We want cities and parishes to come together to make sure as many people are connected as possible.”
Approximately $3 billion in federal grant money will be funneled into the Department of Commerce, Department of Agriculture and toward the creation of a national broadband map, according to a representative from Landrieu’s office.
