 Hundreds of senior citizens from across the state showed up to the Louisiana Legislature to voice their concern about Senate Bill 690.

The bill looks to merge the Council On Aging with a branch of the Department Of Health and Hospitals that also deals with the elderly.

The goal is to streamline services to provide one really strong agency for senior citizens.

However seniors think the merger would cut funding to services and local Council On Aging facilities.
