Lousiana Lt Governor Mitch Landrieu NTC

Who said highway patrol does not know how to deal with natural disaster?  In the mist of Hurricane Isaac, the National Troopers Coalition (NTC) said “the show must go on” and hosted the national conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Louisiana Lieutenant Governor Mitch Landrieu welcomed the group to New Orleans and personally thanked Troopers from across America who helped with the Hurricane Isaac recovery efforts in his state.

The general topic of the meeting from just about every organization attending continued to be attacks on public sector employees, particularly police associations/unions and their pension systems across the country.  Like Arizona, many state police agencies are facing budgetary issues as well as proposed changes/attacks to their respective pension systems/plans.

Another issue that was discussed at great length was the presidential race.  Many of the groups in attendance stood by the decision made at the February meeting, which was to not endorse a presidential candidate.  While this decision did not sit well with some groups, those of us in favor of this decision (including AHPA), agreed that our efforts on should focus on our respective Senators and Congressman.  It is those legislators that we have relationships with and can address issues on a national level.
