Louisiana State Officials Get Pay Raise — But Only if Teachers Do, Too

The
Louisiana House of Representatives has passed a bill granting a pay raise to
elected state officials. However, this pay raise comes with a caveat: teachers
and other state workers must get a pay raise as well.

Louisiana state
officials have not received a pay raise since 1995, and officials hope that this
will help spur interest by quality individuals to become involved in state
government.

Another part of the
Louisiana state officials pay raise bill includes funding for the
Road Home
program
, but
this item is widely expected to be removed from the bill. Right now, the bill
heads to the Louisiana Senate for consideration.

The development of this area will follow a Baton Rouge real estate trend toward little urban districts that provide locals everything need within walking distance. The Advocate reports on what is likely to go into the Perkins Road Hardware property real estate development:

Chad Ortte, an agent for Donnie Jarreau Companies who brokered the deal and is helping develop the project, said Wednesday that two restaurants already have agreed to locate there. One is more casual, while the other is upscale, though he declined to identify them. He also is negotiating with a third restaurant.

The residential section will be a three-story condominium building with four or five units.
