Louisiana legislators have never hesitated to approve constitutional amendments that let voters decide controversial issues they consider too hot to handle themselves. However, when it is an issue with which they don’t agree and that voters might favor, they conveniently find a way to deny voters that opportunity.
A House committee on Monday endorsed several changes that supporters hope will create a legal environment that will lead to lower automobile insurance rates.
Tim Stine, the Chief Financial Officer of Stine Home and Yard company, said since the last legislative session, there’s a problem with enticing new start-ups in the Lake Area.
Have you noticed your Automobile Insurance costs have become harder to afford? As if our hard- earned dollars weren’t already being stretched thin, Louisiana is officially the MOST EXPENSIVE STATE IN AMERICA for Auto Insurance. According to the Insurance Research Council in a report delivered on November 14, 2018, as a percentage of median income, Louisiana residents spend more of their income on auto insurance than any other state. More than people spend in Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama or Florida. It’s like we’re being hit with another tax…a lawsuit abuse tax!

There will be plenty of compelling stories over the next two months as the 2019 Legislative Session unfolds in Baton Rouge. It’s an election year, so the governor and all the legislators know the stakes are high. They are all laser-focused not only on what happens inside the Capitol from now until they adjourn in the first week of June but even more importantly, on how the voters of this state feel about it when they head to the polls in October.
