Baton Rouge- Republican lawmakers in the House Appropriations Committee successfully amended and passed HB 1, the state's spending plan, on a 17-5 party-line vote. House Appropriations Chairman Cameron Henry (R- Metairie) provided a package of amendments that transformed the bill to a "standstill" budget, freezing state spending for next year at the current year's level, with the exception of some constitutionally mandated increases.

"Louisiana Republicans congratulate Mayor-elect Hunter and look forward to working closely with him in the years ahead." - LAGOP Chairman Roger Villere

I congratulate Representative-elect Crews on his victory. We look forward to working with him to oppose the reckless tax and spend policies that are constantly being put forth by the Edwards administration.“ - LAGOP Chairman Roger Villere

The Republican Party of Louisiana released the following statement from Chairman Roger Villere upon the failure of Governor Edwards' keystone tax bill: 

"As the Trump Administration continues to fight for the repeal of Obamacare in Washington, Republicans in Louisiana are joining in on the fight with House Bill 6 by Representative Paul Hollis (R- Covington)." - LAGOP Chairman, Roger Villere

Republican Delegation Chairman Lance Harris (R-Alexandria) said, “This is a sad day for Louisiana. What was once an attractive state for the oil and gas industry has now become a beacon of instability. The coastal lawsuits were a major warning sign that the legal environment is only getting worse. Talk of major tax changes that will cripple businesses in the state was likely the final straw.”

Republican Party of Louisiana Executive Director Jason Doré will be moving his family to the nation's capital to serve as an official in the administration of President Donald J. Trump.

As Governor Edwards looks to use the next three years of his term to raise taxes and implement policies contrary to the values of the vast majority of Louisiana voters, we are looking forward to continuing to expose their lack of a bench in 2019 when several similar legislative seats will be open due to term limits.
