This segment from the May 7, 2021, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features Kara St. Cyr’s recap of the fourth week of the 2021 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature. Her report touches on: the defeat of a bill banning teachers from paddling children in public schools; a bill allowing cameras in special education classrooms if requested by parents or guardians; the tabling of bills related to prostitution; a bill making it illegal for employers to discriminate against someone because of their hairstyle; and the House passing the state budget.
