Senator Sharon Hewitt has started an “Open Louisiana Now” petition on-line requesting Parishes be given control over when to reopen businesses.

Yesterday (04/27/2020) Governor Edwards extended Louisiana's stay-at-home order until May 15. As a result, many businesses are forced to keep their doors closed for nearly 3 more weeks.

KLFY.com reports Sen. Harris says "Every area is different, and the type of industries in those areas is the difference. No one person can map out the perfect plan” according to BRProud.com.

The "Open Louisiana Now" petition at openlanow.com offers 3 boxes you can check to "let the Governor know" why he should let Parishes have control over when to open for businesses.
