No, they don't. The law was changed several years ago. They have to pay face value for their tickets. They are no longer free.
I don't think they should get the opportunity to buy them before season ticket holders. That's my problem with it. Even though they are buying it, they are getting an opportunity by the mere fact that they are a legislator to do something season ticket holders are not. Whether they are buying them or not, it is a perk of their job. And the legislature, although they passed a law banning free tickets, needs to close the loophole and not get any favoritism on tickets.
Moreover, they give LSU money. But whose money is it that they are spending? Is it their own in the form of donations?
