Jindal Voucher Program Struck Down By LA Supreme Court
Bobby Jindal's voucher-based education policy felt the heat of the state's judges Tuesday, as the Louisiana Supreme Court declared it a violation of the state Constitution to give public money to private and parochial schools.

Dems Say Jindal Still Swinging Tax Axe
Bobby Jindal’s address to open the legislative session yesterday made many believe the Gov. had put his tax axe back in the shed, but LA Democratic Party leaders aren't jumping on Bobby's bandwagon.

Tax Axe Update: Jindal's Sales Tax Number Going Up, Kennedy Calls for Popular Vote
Bobby Jindal's tax axe continues to reveal new subtleties, perhaps indicating that it's still being forged.

State Health Secretary Bruce Greenstein Resigns Amid Contract Controversy
The head of the state department overseeing Louisiana's publicly-run hospitals and other health concerns resigned on Friday.

Sinkhole Swallows Access Ramp
Despite geting attention from Bobby Jindal last week, the eight-month-old Assumption Parish sinkhole is getting to the age where it can't be left alone for long.

Jindal's Sinkhole Visit Churns Up Oily Memories
Nearly nine months after the Assumption Parish sinkhole appeared near Bayou Corne, Gov. Bobby Jindal visited the site of the slurry mess and displaced residents on Tuesday. During the appearance, the gov reiterated points that he made last week about buyouts for residents, and planning in case a second nearby cavern starts to give way. But it seems rolling up his sleeves back home in the bayous of Louisiana may have also made the governor nostalgic. As Jindal told it at an afternoon press conference, the Sinkhole Saga suddenly started to have hints of the Big Oozy.
