Lawmakers tackle LHSAA football playoff changes
BATON ROUGE - Lawmakers are looking into the Louisiana High School Athletic Association's decision to separate public school football playoffs from those held by other schools, including magnet and charter schools.
A special joint Senate-House committee is reviewing the league's decision to scrap a system that has been in place for more than 90 years.
Supporters say splitting the playoffs creates a level playing field and allows schools with similar resources to compete.
