"Louisiana’s governor could be temporarily stripped of his power to declare a public health emergency under a measure filed Monday by the Republican leader of the state House of Representatives.

Rep. Blake Miguez is among the GOP legislators who criticized Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) for extending a statewide stay-at-home order through May 15. He filed a resolution (HCR 58) that would suspend Edwards’ authority to declare an emergency related to Covid-19 for 15 days."
