31 New Members Have Their Orientation Today through Friday
State lawmakers in Louisiana will be going through what has been called a “crash course” in the craft of lawmaking.
Be sure to read “Newest Louisiana legislators will get crash course in their new roles” by Ed Anderson in the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
The article says, “[House Clerk Alfred] Speer said the House’s agenda will include mock committee meeting and floor sessions, as well as discussions of ethics laws, parliamentary procedure, introduction to legislative staff, key dates for filing bills, and one called ‘Norms of Behavior or How to Operate within the House and Keep Your Integrity and Sanity.'”

A special legislative session has been announced for March 30, 2011 to redraw state and federal districts. The redistricting will include congressional, state education board, and judicial districts.
Significant district changes are anticipated due to overall population decline and shifts in population concentration as a result of Hurricane Katrina. The session has been called by legislators, not the governor, for the first time in state history.
