House fiscal conservatives set up PAC to tackle budget issues
A group of fiscal conservatives in the Louisiana House has set up a political action committee as part of continuing efforts to revamp the state's budget. More than two dozen House members are involved with the group, which is calling itself the Budget Reform Campaign. The effort, led by Lake Charles Republican Rep. Brett Geymann, is designed to push for changes in the way Louisiana spends its money. Lawmakers in the group object to the use of patchwork, one-time funding to pay for ongoing programs, and services and have criticized Gov. Bobby Jindal for the budgeting tactic. Geymann says the PAC will raise money to pay for its website and promotional work, including possible mailers and advertising. He says the group also may hire someone to analyze budget data. "The Budget Reform Campaign is a combined effort of Louisiana business, civic and political leaders, to clarify our state's budget priorities, reform our budget process and significantly improve our budget end product," reads a statement on the group's website, which you can check out here.
