On WBRZ-TV tonight, they announced that a bill that would potentially pay firefighters and law enforcement an additional $900 annually was pulled for further consideration vs. ‘arguing the topic at this time.’

Meanwhile, Senators of the Louisiana Legislature quickly voted to give their self a hefty pay raise doubling their salaries against the will of the voters in one of the most controversial legislative actions in more than a decade.

Robert Adley, R-Benton, Sharon Broome, D-Baton Rouge, Yvonne Dorsey, D-Baton Rouge, Ann Duplessis, D-New Orleans, Reggie Dupre, D-Houma, Dale Erdey, R-Livingston, Butch Gautreaux, D-Morgan City, Cheryl Gray, D-New Orleans, Lydia Jackson, D-Shreveport, Bob Kostelka, R-Monroe, Eric LaFleur, D-Ville Platte, Rob Marionneaux, D-Grosse Tete, Danny Martiny, R-Kenner, Mike Michot, R-Lafayette, Ed Murray, D-New Orleans, Ben Nevers, D-Bogalusa, Derrick Shepherd, D-Marrero, John Smith, D-Leesville and Francis Thompson, D-Delhi.
