On Government Reform: Occupational licensing structure made working here difficult

Our occupational licensing structure is a prime example of how we have made working in Louisiana needlessly difficult. We rank the 6th worst state in occupational licensing while licensing 77 of 102 identified occupations. More than any other state. I urge you to address universally recognize[d] occupational licensures and remove the barriers of employment in Louisiana.

On Government Reform: Reform our bloated, outdated, antiquated state constitution

Speaking of constitutional parameters, it is time for us to open the dialogue about reforming our bloated, outdated, antiquated, and much abused state constitution. In less than 50 years, the legislature has proposed over 300 amendments of which 210 have been incorporated into to the 1974 constitution. By comparison, the state of Massachusetts still uses their very first constitution with only 120 amendments in 244 years. Something is definitely wrong.

On Tax Reform: Government taxes the hard work and sweat of the people

We need to be honest with where we are and what we have been through financially. Remember government taxes the hard work and sweat of the people. Let's be mindful of the sacrifices they make to fund government. We believe the proposed budget is a blueprint for restoring common sense and necessary conservative money management. Recognizing this, we are cautiously proceeding as we move into the coming fiscal year without a reliance upon further pandemic funds from the federal treasury.
