Reform our broken tax system so that it serves Louisiana’s working families and small businesses, not just corporate interests
Ensure equal pay for equal work by requiring wage transparency and ending the practice of retaliation for employees that ask about their wages

Medicaid Expansion has provided an additional 450,000 Louisianans with affordable health coverage while creating 19,000 new jobs. I’ll work with the Legislature and Governor Edwards to protect Medicaid Expansion
