|style="color:#000;"|'''Gov. Jindal issues veto, avoids recall'''
+
|style="color:#000;"|'''Baton Rouge capital improvement plan to be put to vote'''
Gov. Bobby Jindal issued a belated veto of the Louisiana legislature's recent massive pay hike on Monday, June 30, 2008, avoiding recall efforts that were already underway when it appeared that Jindal was going to reneige on his camopagin promise to veto such a hike.
+
  
The Governor made a campaign promise to prohibit the Louisiana Legislature from voting itself a pay raise, and then vowed to Legislature not to veto their recently passed massive pay raise bill.
+
'''July 23, 2008''': The Baton Rouge Metro Council voted July 23, 2008, to send Mayor-President Kip Holden’s $989 million capital improvement proposal to voters in November.
  
Conservative talk radio and blogs, once staunch Jindal supporters, and even the vast majority of the state's media, turned on Jindal as a result of his deal cutting with the Legislature. A mass rally was planned (and since cancelled) for the steps of the Capitol for July 7, 2008, to urge Jindal to keep his word to the people and veto the bill.<ref>[http://lanewslink.com/ Louisian Political News Wire, July 1, 2008]</ref> <ref>[http://gocitizencan.com/rally/ Citizen Can web site, June 30, 2008]</ref>
+
Holden successfully fought off efforts by three council members to split the proposed bond issue and its supporting taxes—a half-cent sales tax increase and a 9.9-mill property tax—into two parts. The plan proposes $391 million for downtown projects, including a riverfront theme park and the expansion of the River Center, plus a new police station, new jail, drainage improvements, and synchronization of traffic signals.
  
|-
+
Holden said the proposal will create thousands of new jobs and bring more business to the city.<ref>[http://www.2theadvocate.com/news/25841754.html TheAdvocate.com: "Council OKs November vote on mayor’s plan," July 24, 2008]</ref>
|style="color:#000;"|'''Louisiana one of six states with photo ID'''
+
Louisiana is the only state bordering [[Mississippi]] with a photo ID provision, and its law is only a request. Voters may sign an affidavit if they present another kind of identification. [[Florida]] and [[Georgia]] are the only Deep South states requiring a photo ID.

Louisiana enjoys just two of the [[forms of direct democracy in the American states|available seven forms]] of direct democracy.  If the [[Louisiana State Legislature|General Assembly]] places a [[constitutional amendment]] on the statewide ballot, voters can ratify or reject it.  Secondly, Louisiana is one of 18 states with the right of statewide recall.
+
  
The Louisiana political and legal structure has maintained several elements from the time of French governance. The first is the use of the term "parish" in place of "county" for an administrative subdivision. The second is the legal system. Louisiana is the only American state whose legal system is based on civil law, which is based on French and Spanish codes and ultimately Roman law, as opposed to English common law, which is based on precedent and custom. While the Louisiana Civil Code of 1870 has been continuously revised and updated since its enactment, it is still considered the controlling authority in the state.

Baton Rouge capital improvement plan to be put to vote

July 23, 2008: The Baton Rouge Metro Council voted July 23, 2008, to send Mayor-President Kip Holden’s $989 million capital improvement proposal to voters in November.

Holden successfully fought off efforts by three council members to split the proposed bond issue and its supporting taxes—a half-cent sales tax increase and a 9.9-mill property tax—into two parts. The plan proposes $391 million for downtown projects, including a riverfront theme park and the expansion of the River Center, plus a new police station, new jail, drainage improvements, and synchronization of traffic signals.

Holden said the proposal will create thousands of new jobs and bring more business to the city.[1]
