AFP-LA Statement on Early End to Special Session

Mar 5, 2018 by AFP

Baton Rouge, La. – Americans for Prosperity-Louisiana (AFP-LA) State Director John Kay on Monday issued the following statement after the state legislature’s special session came to an abrupt end:

“I am looking forward to the legislature solving the ever-decreasing deficit during the regular session by passing a budget with responsible cuts to state government. I would encourage them to start with the film tax credit that hands out millions per year to Hollywood moguls. Choosing between NOW Waivers and seeing Tom Hanks at a local restaurant should be an easy decision. A second special session in 2018 is completely unnecessary and would be another waste of taxpayer dollars whether taxes are raised in that session or not.”
