Current Topic


     03/17 - Fiscal Reform 2017

Is it time to reform Louisiana’s tax code?
For the past several years, Louisiana’s state budget has repeatedly fallen short of revenue projections, sometimes multiple times per year. These budget gaps have been bridged through cuts, temporary tax increases and patchwork fixes. Is it time to reform Louisiana’s tax code? During the 2017 Regular Legislative session, lawmakers will be considering recommendations to do just that.

Can the state broaden its tax base while lowering rates and omitting tax exemptions and credits? What changes may be in store for personal and corporate income taxes and sales and property taxes? How can the state restructure its tax code to be more fair and competitive with other states? Louisiana Public Square explores the issue of “Fiscal Reform 2017” on Wednesday, March 22 at 7 p.m. on LPB HD and on WLAE in New Orleans. (Recording on Tuesday, March 21.)

Our panelists are:
• Camille Conaway; Louisiana Association of Business & Industry
• Sen. Jack Donahue, R-Mandeville; Senate Finance Committee
• Jan Moller; Louisiana Budget Project
• James Richardson, Ph.D., LSU E.J. Ourso College of Business


The program includes interviews with Michael Olivier with the Committee of 100; Randy Roach, Mayor of Lake Charles and Representative Jay Morris, R-Monroe, member of the House Ways and Means Committee.

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney, and Robert Travis Scott, president of the Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana, host the discussion.

Louisiana Public Square can also be heard on public radio stations WRKF in Baton Rouge; Red River Radio in Shreveport and Monroe; and WWNO in New Orleans. Check their station websites for schedule.
