You may share words of comfort with the family by visiting www.centuriesmemorialfh.comate Representative Roy Burrell’s, D-Shreveport, House Bill 1191 which would increase the hotel/motel occupational tax to 2 percent.
The increase will be used to put more funding towards the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission, Arkla Regional Air Service Alliance, and the Duck Commander Independence Bowl.
The bill will now go before a public vote of Bossier and Caddo Parishes this November. If HB 1191 is passed by the voters, it should provide approximately $2 million to support the successful future of the Duck Commander Independence Bowl.
In a reverse trend of recent years, legislators seemed to by in sync on the state’s $24.6 billion state spending plan for 2015.
Local legislators had all pledged fiscal responsibility and were committed to spending money that was available, not using one-time funds to plug holes in the budget.
The budget will include an increase state workers’ pay, funding for disability services, and money for higher education institutions that want to invest in high-demand jobs.
