Vote to advance bill legalizing sports betting in Louisiana set for today

The Senator says its a worthy cause, and will help the legislation pass, but Mills says the two causes should not be tied together.It is not unusual to marry a virtue like childhood education to a vice like gambling in order to pass your vice. I think it is a very bad idea. If we would like to see it move forward it ought to be done on its own merit.The Metairie Republican says estimates show sports betting itself will not generate a substantial amount of tax revenue, and that the activity could be worth about 20-50 million dollars a year. Martiny warned that not passing the legislation will result in depressed revenues for Louisiana casinos who will lose business to other states, and drive away new potential gaming investors.If it doesnt pass this year I think we are sending a message to the gaming industry that we are willing to lag behind. It will probably make a lot of money for lobbyists over the next couple years as they try to do it again. Tags: Sports betting Gambling vote Casino Comments

Woodward leaves Texas A&M after the Aggies won nine SEC titles over four years under his leadership. Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne says Woodward wont need much of an introduction to fans.Louisiana fans and LSU fans in particular are loyal to LSU people and I think that is a major plus of him coming into the program. He doesnt need to be introduced to people, he knows people here and he is a tiger, he is an LSU graduate.Dardenne says he doesnt suspect lots of coaching changes immediately but the will wade saga may be Woodwards first test as AD.He is obviously going to inherit the basketball situation which is going to be an ongoing issue for a while but it is good to have Woodward at the helm and I think that at least creates a level of stability going into next season.Woodward and Ed Orgeron are the first all Louisiana AD-football coach tandem since 1955. Dardenne says having local Louisianans running the show in athletics could bring a bright future.It is great to see Ed Orgeron here with the football program and Scott now as the athletic director... having two Louisiana boys running the program. I think is going to be a real plus for folks as they look at the future of this program. Tags: LSU Scott Woodward Comments

In addition to facing counts for burglary of an inhabited dwelling, criminal trespass and possession of drugs Green is also charged with battery of a police officer and disarming an officer.Theres no word if Governor John Bel Edwards or any of his family were home during the incident.
