House Republicans Pass Plan to Save Higher Education and Health Care
Bills reform corporate income tax and various tax credits
Baton Rouge, La. – House Republicans passed multiple bills today as part of a plan to fund higher education and health care. This plan, devised and executed by the House Republican Caucus, will go to the Louisiana Senate for concurrence.
House Republican Delegation Chairman Lance Harris, R-Alexandria, applauded the delegation for taking a strong stance to help fund these essential services.
“As the majority party, we have to make the bold decisions that will ensure higher education and health care are funded,” said Harris. “The bills we passed today will not only help us this fiscal session, but will also make systemic changes that will help our state’s financial situation for many years to come.”
Representative Chris Broadwater, R-Hammond, agreed that the long-term solutions the House Republicans sponsored today are in the state’s best interest.
“Today, we made the tough decisions our constituents asked us to make,” said Broadwater. “These decisions will ensure we have thriving higher education systems, effective health care institutions and a more secure financial situation in the future.”
According to Harris, the House Republican Delegation has been working to craft this plan since the beginning of session. The bills passed today reform corporate income taxes, the motion picture investor tax credits, income tax credits on taxes paid in other states and the solar energy systems tax credit.
“Every vote we made today was a vote for higher education and health care,” said Harris. “We did our job to ensure we have strong education opportunities and capable health care institutions. We did this without raising taxes on our state’s middle-class families and small businesses.”
