More than 100 electric school buses are coming to Louisiana. Here’s how they will be distributed

This episode of Louisiana Considered aired on Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2022. Here's what it featured:

Back in October, the Environmental Protection Agency awarded more than $43-million-dollars in funding for electric school buses in Louisiana. The EPA’s Jeffrey Robinson tells us more about how the more than 100 buses will be distributed across the parishes.

Standing out from the landscape on LSU’s Baton Rouge campus are two earthen mounds, which, according to recent research, may be the oldest known man-made structures in the Americas. Brooks Ellwood, professor emeritus with LSU’s department of Geology and Geophysics, spoke to us about the mounds back in September. Today, we give that conversation a second listen.

But first, In New Orleans, all eyes are on the Public Service Commission runoff on December 10, but voters in other parts of the state will be faced with three ballot amendments. WRKF’s Capital Access Reporter, Paul Braun tells us more about these amendments and why some view them as controversial.
