“Today is an exciting day! The outcome of this special session is a win for the people of Louisiana. We started the process of necessary structural change to our election system, allowing for a cleaner and simpler final ballot, and we took the pen out of the hand of a non-elected judge and placed it in the hands of the people. I applaud those legislators who worked hard to pass these bills, and I look forward to moving on to our top priority—the upcoming crime special session,” said Governor Jeff Landry.
