Despite a ruling from a Baton Rouge judge, the state will continue with its plans to close the Huey P Long Medical Center in Pineville. Judge Robert Downing says the Senate violated the open meetings law when the Health and Welfare panel heard legislation authorizing the hospital's closure.

A measure that would close the Huey P. Long Medical Center in Pineville is a step closer to final legislative approval. A House committee voted on a plan to shutter the LSU run hospital and have uninsured and poor residents receive care at two nearby private hospitals. Alexandria Representative Lance Harris says it will lead to improved health care.
