BATON ROUGE, Louisiana: The Louisiana legislative session ended on June 21, leaving the fall count of proposed amendments to twelve. Two constitutional changes will be voted on during the October 2, 2010 election and the other ten will be voted on during the November 2, 2010 election. Six of these changes were from the 2009 portion of the legislative session. While normally around 15 percent of the proposed changes are approved for the fall ballots, outsiders assumed less were approved this session, only seven percent, due to the Gulf spill and the preoccupation with dealing with issues surrounding that problem. Six of the proposed changes are small in scope, would not have much impact on the legislation, the other six though could have further reaching consequences.[1]
