On Nov. 6, Louisiana voters had an opportunity to voice their opinion about whether they approved of six newly-proposed constitutional amendments. On Election Day, they decided to endorse them all.
If you think back to your high school government class, then you probably remember hearing about the United States Supreme Court. It often takes on legal cases that have been decided in lower courts, reviews them and decides whether rulings made upheld the parties' constitutional rights. Louisiana's Supreme Court does much the same. Its justices are responsible for protecting the constitutional rights of our state's citizens.
Louisiana and every other state in the country has their own constitution and then there's one for the entire United States as well.
