General Landry: In a loud, overwhelming manner – the Louisiana Senate declared our State should protect patients, ensure coverage of preexisting conditions, guarantee coverage for essential benefits, and assure a robust marketplace for affordable healthcare with choices for the people of Louisiana.
General Landry: The most valuable resource in the Gulf of Mexico is not the oil and gas underneath the waters, but rather it is the men and women who ply their trades there. And the safety of our neighbors who are working in the Gulf to deliver the energy we need to create jobs and fuel our economy is paramount.
General Landry: Commissioner Donelon, Chairman Mills, Speaker Barras, and I have worked hard to present a state-based, Constitutionally-sound solution to protect patients with pre-existing healthcare conditions and lower health insurance costs for all Louisiana citizens.
General Landry: Thank you for your encouragement, Whip Scalise. Together with other state leaders, we can craft constitutionally-sound, state based solutions for the problems Obamacare has caused for Louisiana, her families, and her businesses.
General Landry: In light of documented history in Louisiana, their position defies common sense. Notably, two of the three clinics in Louisiana are operated by Leroy Brinkley, who employed Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Louisiana women deserve to be protected from such physicians.
General Landry: Scams like this are designed to frighten consumers into hastily sending their money to the callers. Anyone who receives calls like this should contact local law enforcement immediately.
General Landry: Our goal is to protect patients, ensure the coverage of preexisting conditions, guarantee coverage for essential benefits, and assure a robust marketplace for affordable healthcare with choices for the People of Louisiana.
General Landry: Legislation will promote patient protections and insurance coverage should pending litigation on the national Affordable Care Act be successful in returning power to the states for improving healthcare.
General Landry: The Constitution requires that the Governor submit a budget containing revenues ‘which shall not exceed the official forecast of the Revenue Estimating Conference.’ The Governor clearly violated this provision when he intentionally submitted a ‘Proposed Budget’ to JLCB which contained revenues in excess of the official forecast for fiscal year 2020.
General Landry is partnering with the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee under Chairman Mack to hold a full Hearing next week on why the State has delayed justice for family members of victims whose killers are still sitting on death row.
General Landry: As I continue to defend reasonable safety-related regulations, like requirements that doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges and are board certified, I hope the Governor will ensure that our licensing laws are being fully enforced and that the LSBME is performing its duties.
