Real Reform Louisiana Executive Director Eric Holljoins us to discuss his nonprofit organization’s recent attempt to draw attention to the need for insurance reform in Louisiana - by delivering tiki torches to the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry’s office in Baton Rouge because auto insurance rates have yet to decline as a result of the tort reform legislation last year.
We follow up with venue and restaurant owner Johnny Blancheron how his businesses are recovering as Louisiana’s vaccination rates increase. Blancher owns Rock’n’Bowl and Ye Olde College Inn, both located in New Orleans and Lafayette.
