"My heart is heavy for those who have lost children and loved ones, and I am hopeful that they may find peace during this time of grief. I pray that the injured may make a quick recovery."
Gov. Edwards ordered the flags of the United States and the State of Louisiana to be flown at half-staff over all public buildings and grounds in remembrance of the 17 students and teachers lost Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Last week, I invited student government presidents from across Louisiana to the Governor’s Mansion to discuss the importance of fully funding higher education and TOPS. I am committed to doing everything I can to shield these vital institutions from cuts. It’s the right thing to do for the future of our state. #lagov

Transportation Sec. Shawn Wilson and I are heading to Washington, DC today. President Donald J. Trump invited us to participate in a roundtable as he announces his infrastructure initiative. We have significant needs in Louisiana, and we’re looking forward to being a part of this conversation on how to improve our roads, bridges, ports, and waterways.
Louisiana flood victims could have received major relief from a burdensome federal regulation - the Duplication of Benefits penalty - thanks to bipartisan legislation by Congressman Garret Graves and Rep. Cedric Richmond. Unfortunately, Sen. John Kennedy, our only member on the Appropriations Committee, cosponsored legislation that didn't provide nearly enough help. I'm joining Reps. Graves and Richmond in calling on Congress to pass their bill so flood victims can have access to the help they need to rebuild their homes.
WATCH: Last week, Governor Edwards visited a transitional work program in DeQuincy, Louisiana. Programs like these provide education and skills training to inmates and empower them to become productive members of society upon their release. #lagov #cjreform
