Four proposed amendments to Louisiana’s constitution await voters in the Oct. 14 statewide primary election. Voters will decide whether election officials can accept donations from nonprofit organizations, whether in-person religious services deserve an extra layer of constitutional protection, how the state should allocate surplus money and whether cities should have the right to take away a lucrative property tax break from landlords that have serious code violations.
As part of the mission to educate voters ahead of the election, the Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana will host a Constitutional Amendment Webinar on Oct. 4 at 12:00 p.m.
