In the 2010-2011 legislative session, Jackson served on the following committees:
In 2012, Jackson re-introduced a proposal to increase the number of minority judges in Louisiana's 24th Judicial District. The 24th Judicial district covers Jefferson Parish and corresponded to his own district, House District 87. Jackson had hoped to implement his plan to add a third minority judge through House Bill 523, however time ran out when the session ended on June 23.
In 2012, out of the 16 judges in the 24th District, two were African-American, and were elected from a subdistrict in which minorities comprised the majority of voters. Jackson proposed that a third judge be elected from that same subdistrict, or the next subdistrict that sees a vacancy after January 1, 2012.
On October 22, 2011, Jackson won re-election to District 61 of the Louisiana House of Representatives. He was scheduled to face Glenda Williams (D) and Kevin Steel (R) in the October 22 primary, but both dropped out in September, assuring Jackson another term.
