House Committee Keeps Louisiana Personal Tax Repeal Alive
Written by 

Louisiana legislatureNothing personal, but the Louisiana personal income
tax repeal is alive and breathing.

Today, the Louisiana House Ways and Means Committee resuscitated an income tax repeal bill that took hits when it made its way to the Senate last week.

 The Senate had changed Sen. Rob Marionneaux’s, D-Livonia legislation, which would repeal the personal and corporate income tax. The Senate voted for a study to repeal the tax instead of an outright repeal. Opponents of the legislation are concerned about the massive cuts or other revenue measures that would be necessary if the tax would be approved.

The committee decided to maintain the study but to start a ten-year phase-out of the personal income tax starting in 2014 regardless the results of the study and a commission’s recommendations.

The House Committee legislation also eliminates the corporate tax from the repeal legislation. The House is considered to be the more conservative of the two Houses, both controlled by Republicans.

The repeal legislation heads to the House for debate. Governor Bobby Jindal has been mute on the legislation however, some politicos claim he favors maintaining the tax.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
