"We are grateful to Congress for thinking of Rep. Steve Scalise during this difficult time and recognizing him by wearing LSU gear in support of his recovery. Rep. Scalise is a proud LSU alumnus and great supporter of the university, and we are proud to help out even in this small way. The thoughts and prayers of the entire LSU community are with Rep. Scalise, his family and all of those injured."

LSU Board of Supervisors Chair Scott Ballard:
"The entire LSU Board of Supervisors stands united with our nation, our state and the entire LSU family in extending our thoughts and prayers to Congressman Steve Scalise at this critical time.  Congressman Scalise is a proud LSU alumnus and we pray for his full and complete recovery."
