Legislative Update: 7/1/2020

The Louisiana Special Session ended Tuesday, June 30. LRTA carefully monitored the session for any fiscal considerations that could affect retirement or benefit plans. No bills affecting retirement were filed during the special session.
While the special session has ended, we need to continue to remain vigilant as things continue to change throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. LRTA is preparing materials and programs for the future to help you navigate the political horizon and further understand proposals that could impact your retirement benefits.
At this time, LRTA would like to thank our members for their patience and loyalty as we navigated the new waters of virtual advocacy. Thousands of you opened our eight Legislative Email Alerts. You called, emailed or mailed your legislators and urged them not to consider legislation that could impact your retirement plan or benefits. They listened and no such bills were heard during the regular session.
It may seem cliché but it is true: there is power in our numbers. Our voice is stronger thanks to members like you.
For a recap on the 2020 Regular Legislative Session and more information on the two bills passed during the regular session, keep an eye out for the LRTA Summer Newsletter. You may also read our recap online here.
Please stay safe at home until we meet again.

Rodney R. Watson
LRTA Executive Director
