 With this switch, the Republican majority in the House now stands at 56 to 46 Democrats and three Independents.  

Representative Barras was elected in 2007 and is completing his first term in the Louisiana House of Representatives.

Representative Jane Smith, chairman of the House Delegation, welcomes Representative Barras  to the Republican Delegation.   "Since the first day I met my good friend, Taylor Barras, I kept telling him that he belonged with the Republican Delegation.   I am extremely happy to welcome him aboard and have enjoyed serving with him on Ways and Means as well as House and Governmental Affairs.
