Election Results via:Louisiana Secretary of State
The measure enacted the following provisions:
- Change Article III, Section 4(F) of the Louisiana Constitution to require the legislature to "prompt[ly]" provide for temporary successors for legislators ordered to active duty in the military.
Notable arguments made in support of the measure included:
- Taxpayers continue to pay the salary of a legislator regardless of whether they are present or on active duty. If a temporary successor was appointed as called for in the proposed amendment, the salary would be transferred to the successor.
