On Wednesday, February 1, 2017 at 9:30 a.m., Senator Gerald Boudreaux attended the Legislative Roundtable Breakfast hosted by Louisiana’s Council Advocacy Network at the Lafayette Public Library located at 301 W. Congress St. Lafayette, La 70501.
He was educated by members of the community on funding for home and community-based services as well as equitable funding for public school systems in the 2017-2018 state budget.
The event focused on highlighting the concerns of parents, self-advocates, community leaders, and other education advocates on living with and working with individuals with disabilities and their families. The event also focused on helping Sen. Boudreaux better understand the funding formula used for traditional public schools.
Sen. Boudreaux was very pleased to meet with the community and get more insight into their concerns on this matter.
