We all continue to fight hard–relentlessly–for major reforms in Louisiana. But as we do, it’s important to also celebrate important steps forward along the way and to thank those legislators responsible for them.
Just last week, the good ‘ole boys were proposing to “balance” Louisiana’s budget with “one-time” money–using Washington-type gimmicks and fuzzy math. The conservative reformers in our Louisiana House stood strong and instead cut the budget to truly balance it.
These stalwart conservatives in the House deserve our kudos. Please go out of your way to thank them for being truly responsible with our tax dollars. They stood up to a lot of pressure, including pressure created by typical Baton Rouge scare tactics suggesting that modest budget cuts will end the world as we know it.
If you want to leave a simple thank you message, just call the capital switchboard at 225-342-6945 and leave it under one or more of these representatives’ names.
Our list of stalwarts–Representatives Adams, Barras, Berthelot, Stuart Bishop, Broadwater, Burford, Tim Burns, Carmody, Carter, Champagne, Connick, Danahay, Dove, Foil, Garofalo, Geymann, Greene, Guinn, Harris, Harrison, Havard, Henry, Hensgens, Hodges, Hollis, Howard, Huval, Lambert, Nancy Landry, Leopold, Ligi, Lopinto, Lorusso, Mack, Miller, Jay Morris, Jim Morris, Pearson, Ponti, Pope, Pugh, Pylant, Richard, Robideaux, Schexnayder, Schroder, Seabaugh, Simon, Talbot, Thompson and Whitney.
Now the fight moves to the Louisiana Senate. Help continue to rally support for the honest House budget so that it passes the Senate and is signed into law by Governor Jindal.
