LBP reviews the 2014 Legislature

Posted on June 4, 2014

The Louisiana Legislature wrapped up its 2014 regular session without tackling many of the state’s critical challenges, according to a new report by the Louisiana Budget Project. While legislators largely avoided the destructive cuts that have become the norm in recent years, they failed to address the state’s structural budget problems or take advantage of opportunities to help low-income families.

“This was not a productive session for our state’s most vulnerable residents,” LBP Director Jan Moller said. “Elected officials had an opportunity to give low-income workers a raise, provide much-needed health coverage and make common-sense reforms to the payday lending industry. But they elected to stick with the status quo, and that’s simply not good enough.”
