The 2020 legislative session has officially begun in Baton Rouge. With thousands of bills already pre-filed, we wanted to give you a preview of some of the important pieces of legislation that LFF will be tracking this year. As a reminder, you can always be a legislative first responder - sign up here for the 60 Second Brigade.
LFF will be following bills of interest and will provide updates on our Facebook and Twitter throughout the session.
Among the major topics of discussion will be a gas tax, auto insurance rates, tort reform, protecting women’s sports, and gambling. Bills will continue to be filed throughout the legislative session, but here are a few early-filed bills of interest that we will be tracking:
OPPOSE Legalization of Recreational Marijuana (Five Bills)
