The legislature is in a third special session. This session is critical because raising revenue is the only way to stop devastating cuts when temporary taxes expire at midnight on July 1.
The compressed timeline raises the stakes, since legislators will have even less time than usual to evaluate bills about complex fiscal matters. That's why your voice is more important than ever right now. We need your help to make sure the legislature hears the regular Louisianans who are going to be impacted by these cuts.
We’re asking you to contact your legislator and make your voice heard in the lawmaking process. We know that for beginners, calling elected officials can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be! That's why we've created this legislative tool box, so you can learn more about the process and get comfortable contacting your elected representatives.
