A bill that could do away with the Louisiana High School Athletics Association is headed to the House Committee on Education Wednesday.
Rep. Gene Reynolds, District 10, says he does not believe the bill will pass, adding it will probably be killed before it ever leaves committee.
“What it says is if any schools public or private receives state funds they cannot belong to an athletic organization that splits its divisions,” he said. “He’s trying to do away with the LHSAA.”
House Bill 863, authored by Rep. Kirk Talbot, District 78, offers an alternative to the LHSAA, the Louisiana High School Sports Cooperative.
