State unemployment claims falling; still higher than before pandemic

(The Center Square) – Fewer Louisiana residents made new state unemployment claims last week than the week before, though well over 100,000 people still are receiving benefits.

For the week ending Oct. 31, 8,419 people made initial unemployment claims, compared to 9,943 the previous week, according to the Louisiana Workforce Commission.

Last year, before the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic slowdown imposed to limit the spread of the new coronavirus, about 2,000 or so people would make new claims weekly. For example, during the week ending Nov. 2, 2019, 1,762 new claims were filed, the LWC says.

Judge sides with Gov. Edwards on emergency powers; appeal to La. Supreme Court expected

Judge sides with Gov. Edwards on emergency powers; appeal to La. Supreme Court expected

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards addresses the media following a meeting of the state’s Unified Command Group. To his left are Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and LSU football coach Ed Orgeron.

(The Center Square) – A Baton Rouge-based district judge on Thursday ruled unconstitutional a state law allowing one chamber of the Legislature to overturn a governor’s emergency order, setting the stage for an appeal.

Judge William Morvant with the 19th Judicial District said he wished the case could have skipped state court and gone straight to the Louisiana Supreme Court, since the justices will be the final arbiters.

Shortly before the Legislature’s recent special session ended, 65 of the 68 Republicans in the state House of Representatives signed a petition to suspend the governor’s COVID-19 emergency order for seven days. They were doing so under an obscure law that has never been tested in court that allows one chamber to end a state of emergency by petition.
