Sign this Petition Now For a Properly Designed Constitutional Convention!
It is hard to deny that Louisiana's culture, traditions and people are second to none. Yet, we have struggled for generations to adequately fund a consistently reliable government, infrastructure, educational system and economy. The time has come to take bold steps to rectify this issue and create the Louisiana that maximizes our potential.
Unfortunately, there is no quick fix to what is broken in Louisiana state government. The only solution is to replace what we have with a whole new model. It’s time to hit Ctrl+Alt+Del on Louisiana and reboot the boot.
Our state constitution is too detailed and prescriptive, restricting the ability of elected officials to properly maintain an effective budget and governing structure. The current framework places far too much dependence on the hallways of the State Capitol for prosperity.
LABI has joined a coalition of more than 20 chambers of commerce and civic associations to urge support of a properly designed constitutional convention with elected delegates, a diversity of candidates, and an adequate scope that reviews all important fiscal and structural governmental matters.
Our sordid history doesn’t have to become our future. It’s time to move on from our “colorful” past and create the better Louisiana we have long deserved. That won’t happen with more of the same. Special sessions, taxes, lawsuits and political patronage may have gotten us here, but no combination of them will ever take us to where we need to go. It’s time to holistically reform our model of government once and for all… and that can only happen with a Constitutional Convention.
