Gov. Bobby Jindal says federal budget cuts will nearly eliminate the free military funerals provided to families of veterans.

Jindal is considering a 2016 presidential campaign. He sent a letter today to the White House, seeking a reversal of cuts to the military funeral program run by each state's National Guard.

The burial ceremonies can include anything from a two-man flag folding ceremony and the playing of "Taps" to a full gun salute, with no cost to the veteran's family.

The Libertarian Party of Louisiana says it has hit a milestone, reaching 10,000 registered voters in the state.

That’s a tiny sliver of Louisiana’s 2.9 million voters, but Libertarian leaders take it as a sign that people are growing more dissatisfied with the current two-party system and are looking for new options.

Libertarian candidates are showing up on more ballots as well, with candidates registered for the U.S. Senate race and in five of the state’s six House races.
