Louisiana

Current Louisiana Status:

Louisiana became the 8th state to pass the Convention of States resolution on May 25th, 2016. We started out the 2016 legislative year in the Senate. The bill number was SCR52 sponsored by Senator Dan Claitor with 11 Senate co-sponsors.

We passed in the Senate and Governmental Affairs Committee on a bi-partisan vote of 6-1. We then headed to the Senate floor where we passed by an overwhelming bi-partisan vote of 29-6.

After the Senate, we moved onto the House where we continued our success. In the House and Governmental Affairs Committee, we passed by a vote of 6-4. Once we made it to the House floor, there was rigorous debate. Some members attempted to kill the legislation by inserting "poison pill" amendments into the resolution. However, our support in the House was simply too large for them to overcome. The amendments were defeated and the resolution passed on a final vote of 62-36.

Our goal is to find one District Captain in every Louisiana state house district. The District Captain's mission is simple: find 100 people in your district willing to contact their state legislators in support of Convention of States legislation next session.

It doesn't take a huge time commitment to make a difference. Five constituent phone calls is often enough to move an issue to the top of a state legislator's priority list. In person meetings are even more effective.
