Tucker Announces Louisiana Redistricting Plan Sent To DOJ, Court
Written by 

House Speaker Jim Tucker today announced that the plan for redistricting the state House of Representatives is being submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice and a federal district court in Washington, DC for pre-clearance.  Under the Voting Rights Act, Louisiana's redistricting plan must be precleared by either the U.S. Attorney General or a federal court in Washington, DC before it can go into effect. 
 

Tucker said, "Dual submission to both the Department of Justice and the federal district court is the best way to assure that Act 1 of the 2011 First Extraordinary Session will be approved prior to the September qualifying dates for the fall elections."

Copies of the submission and pleadings are available for inspection through the Office of the Clerk of the House or at http://house.louisiana.gov/H_Redistricting2011/..

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”

trump greatIt has been over three decades since our country’s last major tax reform was passed during the Reagan administration. Since that time, America has increased tax rates on businesses and individuals and become less competitive.
