Two major offshore wind companies are looking at Louisiana's coast for developing new wind turbines to generate electricity in the Gulf of Mexico.

Environmental reporter for Nola.com Tristan Baurick tells us what this could mean for the state’s wind economy.

On February 1, Louisiana state lawmakers will go into session to redraw a host of district boundaries, including the state’s congressional and legislative districts.

WRKF’s Capital Access reporter Paul Braun tells us what the new map might look like, and what the public hopes to see.
