Sen. Kennedy Asks Gov. Edwards to Issue Executive Order

Newly installed U.S. Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana is getting involved in the governor’s flood recovery program.

He sent a letter to John Bel Edwards asking him to issue an executive order prohibiting participation by all public officials, their immediate family members, and companies who have a 5 percent or more financial interest in contracts. So far, the governor has not responded.
