The presidential election & COVID dominate the news cycle and the attention of most of America. Still, voters in Louisiana have a unique opportunity to position a pro-life ethic in the state constitution, in anticipation of the day Roe v. Wade is no longer!
Amendment 1, if AFFIRMED, would insert language into the state constitution that there is no right to abortion or the funding for abortion in Louisiana’s constitution. This clarification would pave the way for an ABORTION-FREE LOUISIANA – should Roe become obsolete. LFF’s sister organization, LFF Action, recommends a “Yes” vote.
Voters will also have an opportunity to install a cap on government spending this November.
A "yes" vote on Amendment 4 supports amending the state constitution to remove the existing expenditure limit formula, which allows for bloated spending, and allow the Louisiana Legislature to enact a state spending limit formula through statute that does not allow more than 5 percent growth per year.
For the purposes of keeping our state’s taxes low, LFF’s sister organization, LFF Action, recommends a “Yes” vote on Amendment 4.
Despite efforts by opponents to delay the nomination, U.S. senators say the process will move forward as quickly as possible, given the recent COVID infection of several members. Some suggest waiting. Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin jokingly told an interviewer he would show up in a “moon suit,” if necessary, in order to carry out the duties of his office.
While the illnesses may delay the judiciary committee hearings, senators have continued to meet with Judge Barrett via Zoom and it appears that Majority Leader McConnell still has the numbers to successfully conclude the confirmation process for our next U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Geaux Amy Geaux!
While yesterday’s deadline to register to vote by mail or in-person came and went, prospective voters still have until next Tuesday, October 13th, to register to vote online, using the GeauxVote Online Registration System.
