In local news:

New workers’ compensation benefit limits based on Louisiana’s average weekly wage (AWW) were published in the latest edition of the Louisiana Register. Based on the state AWW of $870, the maximum compensation rate is $653 and the minimum compensation rate is now $174. These rates apply to claims between September 1st, 2017 through August 31st, 2018 and represent a slight decrease in compensation (due to a decrease in the state AWW) from the previous year.
