BATON ROUGE —  Gov. John Bel Edwards released the following statement on the passing of Glenn Koepp.

Gov. Edwards said:

“Glenn Koepp’s genuine kindness, inquisitive nature and spirit of adventure were as unmatched as his expertise and knowledge of the Louisiana Legislature where he spent decades on staff in both chambers culminating with his retirement as secretary of the Louisiana Senate.
