BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Legislative session is underway, but did you know there's a youth legislature too?

Eighth graders from the Boys and Girls Clubs statewide met at the Old State Capitol. They debated and discussed issues in both chambers, the house and the senate.

One student sponsored a bill that would require arts programs in public and private schools.

The youth legislature will convene Thursday.
