A bill to add accountability to the EBR Council On Aging dies in a House committee… Go figure.


State Representatives Paula Davis, Steve Carter, and Franklin Foil co-sponsored a bill to add some higher levels of accountability to the EBR Council On Aging. Good idea, right?  Wrong, according to 8 members of the Commitee On Municipal and Parochial Affairs, who made absolutely sure that the sweet bliss of problems and audits for COA will continue without any accountability for the board or management.  Rep. Paula Davis joined us on AM Baton Rouge with the post-homicide post-mortem.
