After years of short-term decision-making by Republican and Democratic lawmakers alike, Louisiana stands at a crossroads. Repeated budget crises, a confusing and cumbersome tax code, a legal environment ranked among the worst in the country, and a constitutional structure that impedes responsible budgetary practices have sent jobs and opportunity packing to nearby states with more friendly policies.
Now is the time for fundamental reforms to the state’s budget, fiscal, and constitutional structures; the combination of which can finally turn the tide to bring jobs back to Louisiana and create a state where everyone can pursue opportunity.
THE TIME IS NOW
It is not the time for half-measures. Only a comprehensive vision for sweeping reforms will ensure Louisiana has the essential policies to bring jobs—and citizens—back to our state.
