"come back to louisiana" hurricane katrina and rita song

in a time when our state was struck by what some call the worst natural disaster in american history, a major american city practically wiped off the map. hurricane rita destroying a great portion of south west louisiana - the best our senators and representatives can do is offer house bill 796 that "provides for the official state song for hurricane katrina and hurricane rita recovery efforts."

it doesnt give us any comfort either that all these legislators: representatives: martiny, ansardi and thompson and senators: lentini and mcpherson, mispelt the person's name that wrote and performed the song. its jay chevalier not jay chevalie.

so we have to ask yet again - this is the best that our legislators have to offer?
