Proposed new school district in EBR clears House committee

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

It's another step forward for those in favor of a new school district inside East Baton Rouge Parish. The idea passed a House committee, so it now moves to the House floor for debate.  What do you think? Will it pass? And, what do you think about a couple of spots where the levees failed in New Orleans during Katrina being named to the National Registry of Historic Places? It could happen.
