Louisiana: New Coalition Launched in the Pelican State

| | Bookmark and Share

This week, a broad coalition of 18 Louisiana organizations launched Better Choices for a Better Louisiana. The group is interested in urging lawmakers to take a balanced approach to the state budget by cutting “tax code spending” and not just cutting public services funded through direct spending.

When announcing the coalition, the Louisiana Budget Project's Edward Ashworth called for "a more balanced approach to solving Louisiana's budget problems." Leaders of the group have already called upon legislative leaders to not pass any more tax breaks and to review the effectiveness of the state’s existing tax credits and exemptions.
