The Neutral Strip region, (a.k.a. No Man’s Land) draws its name from the area’s brief stint as an official buffer zone between Spain and the United States following the Louisiana Purchase. When the United States purchased the territory from France; Spain and the U.S. were in conflict over the boundary south of Natchitoches. The region’s use as an official buffer between Louisiana and Spanish Texas lasted from 1806 until the 1819 “Adams-Onis Treaty” that established the Sabine River as the territory’s western boundary.

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

LEGISLATURE GETTING IT TOGETHER

As the legislature is getting things together for the upcoming session of 2020 there are a few things that are certain. One is that they will be bumping heads on a lot of issues. Another thing for certain is that we all know the Governor has to be in the mix if possible. Another thing is that they all seem to express an interest in working together. It is much better to pass bills that the Governor feels he will sign. On the other hand, the Governor must be wise enough to realize that if a bill comes out with strong consent it is not a good idea for him to object.
