Legislative Task Force Holds First Meeting

The Louisiana Legislative Advisory Task Force on Economic Recovery formed last week by Senate President Page Cortez and House Speaker Clay Schexnayder  met for the first time last Thursday. The group is charged with developing comprehensive policy, legislative, and regulatory recommendations to immediately re-start the Louisiana economy and to invest in the long-term recovery of households, workers, and businesses from the COVID-19 crisis.

Thurday’s meeting was largely organizational, as former Lafayette Mayor-President Joel Robideaux was selected as the Task Force’s vice chair, and members were assigned into specific study groups. In addition, members were updated on the economic and medical outlooks for the state and heard presentations from US Chamber Chair Maura Donahue, LABI President Stephen Waguespack and the leaders of chambers and business groups from around the state. 

The Task Force’s next meeting is set for Thursday, April 30, at 8:30 am.

Any ideas, questions or comments about the task force and its meetings can be emailed to info@laertaskforce.com.
