The League of Women Voters of Louisiana is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.


LWVLA has six standing advocacy committees – Criminal Justice, Education, Environment, Healthcare, Voter Service, Women’s Issues – which study issues and related legislation. Now posted in each committee’s section are:

  •  A summary of the five bills each committee found to be highly important at the start of the 2018 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature and the position that committee recommended on each bill, and
  • Legislative Scorecards on how the members of the Louisiana senate and house voted and the outcome of each bill.

This information is made available so that the public can easily determine how their representatives voted on issues important to the LWVLA.

NOTE: All information was obtained from the Louisiana Legislature website
http://www.legis.la.gov/legis/home.aspx. Senate committee votes are not reported on that site.
When a committee member voted “yea” to defer a bill, that vote is reported in the Scorecard as “nay” since it was against the bill. If no vote is reported, that bill was never considered for a committee or floor vote.
