Little is a retired farmer.
He is a member of the Louisiana Republican Legislative Delegation, and the Louisiana Rural Caucus.
In the 2010-2011 legislative session, Little served on the following committees:
- Agriculture, Forestry, Aquaculture and Rural Development
- Natural Resources and Environment
Little lost re-election in 2011. He faced Michael Echols (R) and Jay Morris (R) in the October 22 primary. 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. However, since no candidate reached this threshold, a general election took place on November 19 between Little and Morris. Morris defeated Little to win the seat.
