(WVUE) -

Two troopers with ties to our State of Unrest investigation want the Louisiana State Police Commission to reconsider their demotions.

The FOX 8 Lee Zurik investigation raised serious questions about improper travel by Louisiana State Police employees, including a road trip to a San Diego conference that included side trips to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon.

Two troopers were demoted in rank following an internal affairs investigation of that trip. Now, they're appealing that punishment.

The appeal hearing should take place next week.
