Newly Elected Governor Calls Special Session in Louisiana
Gov. Jeff Laundry called a special session to redraw the state’s congressional district map.
This comes in the aftermath of a federal judge ruling Louisiana’s congressional map violates the Voting Rights Act by diluting power of Black voters.
The session is scheduled to convene January 15 and could potentially address other issues including a redrawing of state Supreme Court districts and moving from an open primary election system to a closed primary system.
