On June 12, 2020, Governor John Bel Edwards signed Senate Bill 189, Act 311 enacting several COVID-19 relief funds including the Louisiana Main Street Recovery Fund that awards grants to many Louisiana small businesses to assist in their recovery for the economic impacts of COVID-19.  The program will be administered by the Louisiana Department of Treasury, John M.

3.  Presentation – The Safety Pouch:

The Safety Pouch is a document holder that stores essential driving credentials needed for traffic stops.  It attaches and detaches from the window while securing your documents inside.  As the attending officer approaches the vehicle, your information is readily available for review; thus, eliminating the need for the driver to reach for credentials and allowing their hands to be on the steering wheel.

  • Presenter:   David Price, Entrepreneur and Inventor of the Safety Pouch.  A second-year college student at Loyola University.
