9News Early Edition from Matt Williams: July 24, 2014 - WAFB 9 News Baton Rouge, Louisiana News, Weather, Sports

No vote on 'Fairness Ordinance' due to time limits

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

So, what will happen now for the "Fairness Ordinance" in Baton Rouge? The Metro Council quite literally ran out of time last night before it could vote on it. Both sides remain passionate about what it means, but one councilman may have a way to get it to the masses for a vote of the people. Plus, we have another Crime Stoppers Think Fast special. What should you do if you are caught in an active shooter situation? Former Police Chief Jeff LeDuff will join us to weigh in. And, it’s another quick recipe in the kitchen with Chef Jeff. Grab your blender.

Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
