With just days until the start of the 2013 legislative session, many elected officials are speaking up about what lies ahead.
District 26 State Senator Jonathan Perry says this session shouldn't be as contentious as last year.
Saying Jindal's education reform plan fueled that fire while this year the governors tax reform plan will take front and center.
As it stands now Perry says he will not support that plan. Other issues Perry plans to tackle this session will be to better protect correctional officers.
"If inmates throw substances on them some of the law right now doesn't protect them this bill will strengthen law protecting correctional officers"
