On Tuesday, May 16, the Louisiana House of Representatives debated legislation that would have eliminated the state historic tax credit. Thanks to the community voices who contacted their representatives, and the lobbying efforts of the Louisiana Tax Credit Coalition, Reps. Julie Stokes and Stephanie Hilferty amended the reference to the state historic tax credit out of the bill. The amendment was adopted by the House, and Rep. Ivey subsequently deferred further action on the bill.
Thank you again to everyone who reached out to their legislators to advocate for the historic tax credit. Your voice makes a difference!
