In the 2014 legislative session, Hollis and 12 other members of the House formed the Louisiana Legislative Conservative Coalition. The coalition, under the chair of Rep. Alan Seabaugh (R), will attempt to pull the Louisiana Republican Legislative Delegation to the right and re-instill conservative principles to the delegation.
In the 2012-2013 legislative session, Hollis served on the following committees:
He announced on December 30, 2013, that he would run for the Senate seat in Louisiana. He indicated that the reason behind his run was the lack of support for fellow Republican candidates Bill Cassidy and Rob Maness.
“I want to give them another option,” he said. “I don’t see a whole lot of excitement for any of the candidates in this race. If I did, I certainly wouldn’t get in this mix.”
On October 22, 2011, Hollis won election to District 61 of the Louisiana House of Representatives. He defeated Christopher Trahan (R) in the primary election on October 22, 2011. Because Louisiana uses a blanket primary system, a candidate can be declared the overall winner of the seat by garnering 50 percent +1 of the vote in the primary.
