‘Amendments, Sample Ballot; Voters to decide 10 constitutional issues’

The Advocate provides a rundown of the 10 state constitutional amendments that will confront Louisiana voters when they go to the polls on Tuesday, November 2.  Several of the amendments are tax-related.

The amendments range from giving parishes more mineral tax revenue to prohibiting legislators from ever again giving themselves an immediate pay raise.

The proposed changes involve the constitution that Louisiana adopted in 1974. Voters have approved 155 changes and rejected 68 proposed amendments to the latest version of the state constitution.

A majority of voters must agree to change the constitution in order for the amendments to pass.
