Dedicate 100% of Gas Tax for Roads

Dedicate 100% of Gas Tax for Roads


State gas tax is 20 cents per gallon = 600 million dollars. The gas tax for roads is being raided and spent elsewhere. We need legislation to fix this.

Reform State Government

Reform State Government


State Government has grown from an 9 billion dollar budget in 1989 to 30 billion dollars to date. You can’t spend your way to prosperity. State debt = 17.6 billion dollars.The State has 17,000 consultants and 16,000 State employees. It is time to reign in state spending. Establish a commission to evaluate each state agency for efficiency, transparency, and accountability. Reduce the number of consultants to a reasonable efficient level. Outsource jobs as much as possible. The private sector can do it cheaper and more efficient. Cut wasteful spending. Set up a hotline to report wasteful spending. Start paying off the debt. Reduce State Government.

School Safety

School Safety


School shootings are fresh on the minds of students, teachers, and parents. Prayer should be the first line of defense. Parents should pray for their children safety. Churches could adopt a school and keep a vigil of prayer covering the school. Metal detectors used at entrance to school. Have someone patrol the perimeter of the school during school hours.

Welfare Reform

Welfare Reform


Louisiana is now a welfare State. 1.5 million people on Medicaid, 1/3 of the population, Cost 10 Billion Dollars a year and 1/3 of State budget. The legislative auditor estimates 208,000 people should not be on Medicaid. This is an additional cost of 1 Billion Dollars. Workfare – other states have implemented work requirements for able bodied people. As their income grew, they no longer needed Medicaid. This dramatically reduced the number of Medicaid recipients. If nothing is done, Medicaid cost will double in 8 years.

More Mental Illness Help

More Mental Illness Help


Suicide deaths now exceed automobile accident deaths and murders. Mental illness is an imbalance of chemicals in the brain. It requires the right medication so that person can have a productive life. Once that person is on the right medication, it will be for life. There are not enough psychiatrist to fill the need. Each family is touched by a relative with mental illness. A person has to be ready to commit suicide or homicide in order to get immediate help. For all others who need help, they will have to wait for months to see a Psychiatrist if they can find one. We need to recruit and offer incentives for high school and college students to pursue a career in psychiatry and practice in La.
