Two lawyers for the state have find two centerpieces of Governor Bobby Jindal's Legislative Agenda unconstitutional.
The Louisiana Supreme court held a hearing Tuesday afternoon to hear arguments concerning the expanded school voucher program and the plan to shift future rank and file state workers to a 401-k-style retirement plan. One state judge in Baton Rouge found that the voucher program unconstitutionally diverts public money to private and parochial schools.
Another found that the retirement plan needed a two-thirds majority vote rather than the simple majorities it got in both the house and senate.
