Keep Louisiana Library Boards Politically Neutral.

House Bill 640, filed by Representative Jay Galle (R-Mandeville), seeks to change the laws regarding the appointment of library boards. The bill would allow governing authorities (parish councils or police juries) to remove library board members for NO CAUSE. This takes away the autonomy of the board, making members subject to the political whims of local politicians instead of community members.
