STATEMENT FROM SECRETARY ARDOIN ON THE PASSAGE OF HB 311
BATON ROUGE, La. — The Louisiana Senate joined the House of Representatives in passing HB 311 by Representative Miguez, which will place a constitutional amendment on the ballot this fall prohibiting the use of funds and resources from a foreign government or a nongovernmental source in the conduct of Louisiana elections, functions and duties called for in the election code (Title 18 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes).
“Louisiana’s elections are among the safest in the nation, and this endorsement of Representative Miguez’s legislation by a supermajority of members in both houses only serves to help further protect Louisiana’s ballot from outside influences,” said Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin. “I thank Representative Miguez for his diligence in bringing this opportunity for Louisiana’s citizens to decide this crucial issue once and for all!”
