PPH- This Legislation is Bananas!
This episode, join co-host Sophi Zaken and our guests Jackson Voss and Logan Burke as we kick off Louisiana's Legislative season. Jackson fills us in on the structure, opportunities at, and weaknesses of Louisiana's legislature, and what we can expect to see during this tax and budget focused fiscal session. Get an in depth look from Logan at proposed legislation that literally lets Louisiana's energy companies charge unlucky ratepayers- twice!- for setting unneeded coal on fire. Not burning it in a coal plant to produce energy. Just setting it on fire.
Compost: it's dirty, it's decomposed, and it's downright delightful! Loyola New Orleans College of Law students Emma Collin and Molly Liberto join host Sophi to discuss how composting has the ability to slash our methane and carbon emissions, enjoys bipartisan support, and reduces the need for energy intensive, petrochemical-derived fertilizer.
