LEGISLATIVE MINUTE

  /  LEGISLATIVE MINUTE

The voters in Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes sent a strong message to lawmakers during Midterm Elections, strongly shooting down tax increase propositions in each parish. Debate on social media and around water coolers in the area were strong in the lead-up to the elections, but voters had their say, nixing both with strong majorities. SHERIFF’S TAX TAKES HARD FALL A hard push from Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter proved unsuccessful on Midterm Election Day, with voters rejecting his proposed 1/2 -cent sales tax to expand the use of school resource officers, provide raises for deputies and bolster his office from effects of revenue decreases over a period of years. The tax measure failed by a 2-1 margin, with 9,958 “yes” votes and 19,934 “no,” or 67 percent against and 33 percent in favor, according to final but unofficial results provided by the Louisiana Secretary of State.

State Senator Norby Chabert took some time out of his busy schedule to discuss some happenings in the current political arena. In this wide-ranging Q&A, he discusses the current budget surplus, as well as giving his thoughts on the state of health care in Louisiana. Q: What are some things going on in the healthcare realm right now that are worth noting? A: Well, we just recently got a $30 million grant to combat Opioid addiction in our state. We’re very happy about that. This, as you know, is a major problem in our state and in our country right now. In Louisiana, the rates are particularly high. (By the time this publication comes out), we will have had a committee meeting and one of the things we’re going to be talking about is that grant and why it’s needed here. From my understanding, it will be spread out over multiple agencies. I think that’s great. Another thing worth noting and another area that I think is
