General Landry: Our goal is to protect patients, ensure the coverage of preexisting conditions, guarantee coverage for essential benefits, and assure a robust marketplace for affordable healthcare with choices for the People of Louisiana.
General Landry: Legislation will promote patient protections and insurance coverage should pending litigation on the national Affordable Care Act be successful in returning power to the states for improving healthcare.
General Landry: The Constitution requires that the Governor submit a budget containing revenues ‘which shall not exceed the official forecast of the Revenue Estimating Conference.’ The Governor clearly violated this provision when he intentionally submitted a ‘Proposed Budget’ to JLCB which contained revenues in excess of the official forecast for fiscal year 2020.
General Landry is partnering with the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee under Chairman Mack to hold a full Hearing next week on why the State has delayed justice for family members of victims whose killers are still sitting on death row.
General Landry: As I continue to defend reasonable safety-related regulations, like requirements that doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges and are board certified, I hope the Governor will ensure that our licensing laws are being fully enforced and that the LSBME is performing its duties.
General Landry: I urge Louisiana parents and guardians to take a moment to familiarize themselves with the recently recalled child products. These products may potentially endanger yourselves or your loved ones.
General Landry: We remain hopeful that if the Supreme Court grants certiorari in this case, it will be to re-affirm that courts rule on fact-specific cases; because the facts in our case show Act 620 is constitutional and consistent with our overall regulatory scheme for surgical procedures.
