The Louisiana Legislative Auditor (LLA) Hotline gives the public multiple avenues to provide information on possible theft, fraud, waste or abuse of public funds. The LLA Hotline is a result of Act 693 of the 2014 Regular Legislative Session. Act 693, as Louisiana Revised Statute 24:523.1, requires state, local and quasi-public agencies to post a notice that provides information on how to report the misuse of public funds to LLA. A quasi-public agency includes any not-for-profit organization that receives or expends any local or state assistance in any fiscal year. Assistance includes grants, loans, transfers of property, awards, and direct appropriations of state or local public funds. This notice must be posted on an agency's premises and website. Information provided to the hotline may result in an investigation, audit or other review by LLA staff. Click here to view the notice.

Organ Donation

To raise community awareness, the state of Louisiana requires hospitals to inform patients or their families of the option of organ and/or tissue donation. There are over 1700 individuals in Louisiana awaiting lifesaving organ transplants, and thousands nationally. Nearly 20 people who die each day do so unnecessarily, because there are too few organ donors. Please consider registering at and help save lives. Should you desire further information, please call the Medical Unit at (985) 632-8316.
