    They better do a registration drive. Young people are not registering to vote. I'd think a 20% turnout for ages 18 to 24 to be outstanding. In Ouachita Parish that might equal 2000 votes total. Not all of those will vote yes. Nothing to see here.

    So it's NOT a separate taxing district calling for the tax?

    With the public climate against any new property taxes and it being a re-election year for Police Jurors - I'm interested to see how this plays out

    To me a motel/hotel sales tax on tourism would of been the way to go

    The student fee was the way to go, and ULM students emphatically said NO.

    That's the 4th or 5th student fee ULM students have rejected in the last several years.

    Why should the community be forced into footing the bill for projects ULM's own students and alumni don't want?

    Bruno's latest BS is that it is not for athletics but to promote ULM as a research university. MeTooU

    KTVE Facebook post, like every comment is a big fat "No" for the proposal.

    Reading through many social media posts, mostly all are against it. Even folks who are ULM supporters are against this tax.

    Hope Young, public relations director at ULLM, said the university believed the VCOM medical school would draw more students, though specific enrollment estimates would remain unknown until the medical school opened.
