New Orleans Satellite Government Website Launched

The New Orleans Satellite Government is an ongoing and interactive project of research and transparency in city government.

With support from the Murphy Institute and the Provost, Tulane professors Aaron Schneider (Political Science) and David Marcello (Public Law Center at Tulane Law School) developed a website, which seeks to provide, in one location, a database with accurate and comprehensive information on the system of satellite government that operates in New Orleans. There are over 140 boards, commissions, public benefit corporations, security and development districts, and other entities that undertake public functions on behalf of the people of New Orleans. These entities vary in their origin, operation, and oversight, and they accumulate over time. For more information or to interact with the database visit the New Orleans Satellite Government
