The Times-Picayune reports from Baton Rouge:

"...the sponsor of a stalled bill that would allow the privatization of Avoyelles Correctional Center was asked whether the measure, House Bill 850, would be brought forward for another vote. Rep. Henry Burns, R-Haughton, said, 'At this moment, my intention is that the bill will probably not move.'"
