BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33)- At the Capitol today, a newer version of a previous bill that wanted to merge SUNO with UNO is approved by the House of Representatives
The House approved the bill by a unanimous vote of 96-0. This newer version of Jim Tucker’s House Bill 537 keeps SUNO independent. It also moves the University of New Orleans from the Louisiana State University System to the University of Louisiana System.
Now that the House has approved the bill, it now moves to the Senate for further discussion.
