Welcome to the Louisiana Legislature Log Blog!

Louisianans, with all that goes on in their lives, who wish to find out more about what their Legislature is doing can face a daunting task involving much time and effort. This blog exists to help make a little more sense of what happens during, and even a little in-between, sessions.

Beginning in the near future, first on a weekly, then, as the 2005 regular session greets us, on a daily basis, appearing on this site will be features such as:
  • the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly -- bills that fall into these categories
  • notable comments made by legislators in performing their duties
  • analysis on whatever interesting comes out of the Legislature

I do have a day job as a humble political science professor so I can't promise a blow-by-blow description of what's happening, but I can provide a little insight and context into what goes on in Baton Rouge every spring. Together, maybe we can have some fun with this.
