Sen. Allain was recognized for his support or opposition to key measures identified by LABI as having a significant impact on the state’s economy.

LABI scored legislators on their positions on 21 proposals relating to taxation, employer mandates, criminal justice reform, budget and tax measures. Sen. Allain earned a 100 percent score.

“As a businessman and farmer, I know firsthand the importance of government developing the right policies and programs to grow our economy without overburdening hard-working citizens with regulations and unnecessary taxes,” Allain said. “I look forward to continuing to work with LABI and others to improve and diversify our economy.”

Allain, who is serving his second term in the Louisiana Senate, is vice-chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and is a member of the Senate Agriculture, Natural Resources and Commerce Committees. He also chairs the Senate Select Committee on Coastal Restoration and Flood Control.
