SECRETARY SCHEDLER TALKS ONLINE VOTER REGISTRATION ON NPR

BATON ROUGE, La.—Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler participated in an extensive interview with National Public Radio (NPR) concerning online voter registration which aired Monday on “All Things Considered.” Louisiana was one of the first states in the nation to implement online voter registration in 2006 and is considered a leader in election technology.

“I am so proud to tout Louisiana’s election system whenever I can,” said Secretary Schedler. “Most people in our state don’t realize how advanced we are in terms of using technology in voting—whether it’s online voter registration or our award-winning GeauxVote app for election information.  A total of 20 states have joined us in embracing online registration and now, several others, including Texas and Florida are considering similar programs.”

SECRETARY SCHEDLER WARNS BUSINESSES ABOUT MISLEADING CALLS

BATON ROUGE, La.—Secretary of State Tom Schedler is alerting all business owners of reports of fraudulent phone calls being made concerning the filing of their annual reports, warning them to be cautious. A company named Louisiana Council for Corporations has contacted businesses in the state seeking to file their annual reports for a service fee of $125. However, no annual report is ever filed on the company’s behalf.

“We have seen similar scams in the past using notices sent by mail,” said Secretary of State Tom Schedler. “This time, businesses are being contacted by phone, but the outcome is the same—they lose money and never receive an updated annual report. My advice is for owners to beware if contacted by phone concerning their annual reports. My office will only reach out to them if they have initiated a filing and we have follow up questions. When in doubt, hang up and call my office directly to insure you are not being taken for a ride,” emphasized Schedler.

In past years, Commercial Division customers have also received correspondence from Corporate Records Service, Louisiana Corporate Compliance Business Services and Corporate Compliance Company. These companies are also not affiliated or associated with Louisiana state government in any way. Business owners with questions or concerns are encouraged to contact the Department of State’s Commercial Division for more information at 225.925.4704 or commercial@sos.la.gov.

Additionally, Secretary Schedler reminds owners to subscribe to the department’s commercial email notification system aimed at protecting businesses from fraud and identity theft. Anyone can sign up for the system which generates messages regarding changes to commercial entities, non-governmental correspondence, office closures and most importantly, warnings involving possible fraudulent activity.

Subscriptions to the system are voluntary, and individuals are able to easily register via the website while viewing a corporation record. Once subscribed under the specified entity, notifications will be sent if any changes are made to the company. In addition, the system will generate a message if an annual report is not filed on time; a business is not in good standing; or a business is revoked. Subscribers can also opt to receive messages via text.

SECRETARY OF STATE’S OFFICE BRACES FOR STAFFING CUTS

BATON ROUGE, La. – Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler says a $930,000 mid-year budget cut will result in drastic reductions to staff and operating hours at 14 museums under his control. Downsizing at the Secretary of State’s historical sites has been ongoing for many years, but Schedler says this latest blow is the largest and most unfortunate.

Secretary Schedler shared the plans to address the mid-year figure using five main sources as a result of meetings with the Division of Administration. More than $428,000 of the mid-year reduction is realized through the postponement of a BESE election in northwest Louisiana until October. Another $364,000 is achieved through reductions in operating costs, elimination of the Elections Outreach Division as well as a hiring freeze for parish Registrars of Voters. The remaining $119,000 directly touches the Secretary of State’s museum program and will impact the most employees due to the anticipation that the cut will be annualized next fiscal year. Annualization equates to a permanent reduction of $1.7 million in funding, which is half of the Museum Division’s total budget.

“This level of reduction in the last three months of the fiscal year is truly daunting,” said Secretary Schedler. “Our strategy since I took office has been to work as an honest partner with the local communities where these assets reside and find solutions that might help fill the budget gap over time.” said Schedler. “Many of our partners have stepped up in various ways, so it’s disappointing that the state can’t continue its support. It is especially sad given our rich history.”

Schedler shared the budget numbers with his senior staff and alerted them that he will immediately seek Civil Service approval for anticipated layoffs of approximately 24 full time employees—mostly impacting museum staff—to begin as early as mid-April. The impact of the staff reductions include eliminating private elections and voter registration for schools/organizations as well as bringing the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge and the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum in Shreveport down to operating only three days a week.  The remaining museums will open one day per week once the cuts are implemented.  Additionally, as a result of the reduced hours of operation many part-time employee positions at the museums will be eliminated and all remaining part-time employees will work no more than 8 hours per week.

“My message to our staff and supporters today was simple. Anyone or any group that has a specific interest in assisting our museums or outreach efforts in any way should step forward now,” stated Schedler. “My door is open for solutions and every offer will be carefully considered.”

Since fiscal year 2008-09, the Secretary of State’s Office has seen state general fund dollars for museums cut from $4.2 million, to $3.4 million before the latest mid-year reduction. During that time, many of the museums’ hours of operations were significantly reduced, some to as few as two days per week, while others actively recruited groups or agencies to help support their operations with private funds.

“When you outline all of the work we’ve done to avoid closing the doors of our museums it’s easy to understand why this latest round of cuts has taken the wind out of our sails,” said Schedler. “In 2013, we reverted the building housing the Garyville Timber Museum to the Garyville Museum Timber Association so they could develop the site into a tourist attraction. At the Mansfield Female College, we sold the Lyceum building back to the original donor family who worked with the DeSoto Police Jury to convert it into a community center. The Cotton Museum in Lake Providence successfully passed a local millage to assist in their activities and the Delta Music Museum in Ferriday has partnered with the city to provide grass cutting services. At this point, I fear finding additional efficiencies is practically impossible,” emphasized Schedler.

Below is a list of the museums and historical sites, and the anticipated state-funded staffing impact on each. For additional information about each site visit http://www.sos.la.gov/HistoricalResources/VisitMuseums/Pages/default.aspx.

Louisiana’s Old State Capitol (Baton Rouge) 9 full-time layoffs, 1 part-time reduction in hours

LPB AND THE SECRETARY OF STATE’S OFFICE LAUNCH THE LOUISIANA DIGITAL MEDIA ARCHIVE

On Jan. 20, LPB and the Secretary of State’s Office officially launched the Louisiana Digital Media Archive. This exciting new project is the home of the Louisiana Public Broadcasting Digital Collection and the Louisiana State Archives Multimedia Collection. This is the culmination of a five-year effort to give the general public a front row seat to Louisiana history through video of historic events and allows viewers a chance to visit remote and endangered Louisiana places and cultures. It’s also the kickoff of LPB’s 40th anniversary celebration.

“We see the LDMA as both an exciting educational tool for teachers and students and a way to preserve the valuable media from our state’s rich history,” LPB Presi­dent CEO Beth Courtney said.

“Preserving our state’s unique history in a format that the average person can explore and enjoy has always been one of the critical missions of the State Archives,” said Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler. “Seeing ac­tual moving pictures of federal marshals escorting Ruby Bridges as she integrated New Orleans public schools, watching President Kennedy’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, distributing information on Bourbon Street or witnessing the devastation left by Hurricane Camille all along the Gulf Coast brings us all back to those moments in time and makes them real. Working collaboratively with LPB makes perfect sense and allows us to continue to capture and catalog important historical moments so that they can be remembered by future generations.”

Originally discussed in 2005, actual work began on the archive in 2009 when LPB joined in the American Archive of Public Broadcasting project funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Since that time, the LDMA has digitized more than 1,500 videos including interviews with Louisiana civil rights heroes, notable po­litical figures, war heroes, artists and literary icons. Thou­sands of other videos will be added to the collection in the coming years. The public cannot download any of the content on the site, but they can view it by visiting http://ladigitalmedia.org.

Some of the items featured in the LDMA are episodes from LPB’s award-winning series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” and “Louisiana Public Square,” clips from the six-part “Louisiana: A History” series, coastal con­servation documentaries and cultural heritage programs. LPB will be adding more clips from its award-winning documentaries and series in the future. The Louisiana State Archives holds the historic collections of many of the state’s oldest and most respected news broadcasters including WWL-New Orleans; WBRZ-Baton Rouge; and KLFY-Lafayette along with hundreds of oral history inter­views recorded over the past half-century.

In addition to providing an educational resource for our state, part of the LDMA’s mission is to preserve the historic video that was recorded during the modern age. Most archival media collections contain thousands of videotapes that have outlived their shelf-life. Many have videos that have deteriorated to the point where they will be destroyed by a single play. Equipment necessary to “play” these videotapes is no longer manufactured and locating and maintaining obsolete machines is costly and will soon be impossible. Another challenge in preserv­ing this recorded history is the state’s climate. Humidity threatens videotapes and film and devastating Gulf storms pose serious problems for fragile recordings in terms of power outages, fluctuation in storage conditions and facil­ity damage. LPB and the State Archives are dedicated to saving as much of this fragile video as possible by provid­ing it with a safe, protected permanent home.

For more information, contact Bob Neese at LPB at 225.767.4274 or bneese@lpb.org or Meg Casper at the Secretary of State’s Office at 225.362.5086 or meg.casper@sos.la.gov.

SECRETARY OF STATE’S OFFICE FACING MILLIONS IN CUTS

BATON ROUGE, La. – Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler says a proposed $3.8 million mid-year budget reduction by the Jindal administration will force him to implement an agency-wide employee furlough as early as next week. Schedler has been advised to prepare an impact statement to the Division of Administration by Friday outlining how the reduction would be realized.

“This level of reduction this late in the fiscal year is truly daunting,” said Secretary Schedler. “After holding the largest election our state has seen in decades just this past fall, my office’s resources are down to the bone. The administration is asking for us to give up bone marrow, and it is extremely painful. You can’t cut enough pens, pencils and travel allowances to get to this number,” said Schedler.

Schedler shared the budget numbers with his senior staff this morning and alerted them that if the agency receives an Executive Order calling for the cuts, he will immediately seek Civil Service approval for a furlough to begin Tuesday, January 20, 2015 or soon thereafter. Once approved, all Secretary of State employees, both classified and unclassified (including Secretary Schedler), will be required to take one day off per pay period through the rest of the fiscal year. Furlough days will be staggered throughout the agency so that office hours can be maintained for the public.

Through the one day furlough, the Secretary of State’s Office anticipates a savings of $1.1 million through June 30th. Additionally, the Jindal administration has requested $2.6 million in state general funds used for elections. The remaining balance will be achieved from various savings in operational costs.

“I recognize that this kind of reduction is unsustainable in the long run. So, as I have my entire career, I plan to be fiscally responsible,” said Schedler. “As we await an Executive Order and Civil Service approval, immediate action was necessary to maximize savings while continuing to look for a more permanent solution if the budget picture does not improve.”
