2021 Legislative Award Winners Announced!
Louisiana Family Forum (LFF) released its 2021 Legislative Scorecard, a tool to assess the record of lawmakers on key votes during the 2021 Regular and Override sessions of the Louisiana Legislature.
“LFF selected votes reflecting a variety of issues such as protecting Second Amendment rights, limiting government growth, gambling expansion, and religious liberty. This guide provides a snapshot of how lawmakers voted at the State Capitol during the extremely unusual ‘coronavirus interrupted’ sessions of 2021,” said Gene Mills, President of LFF. “This report card is designed to assist the public in evaluating lawmakers’ commitment to the principles of life, liberty, and limited government. The intent is to encourage a dialogue between the public and lawmakers on these distinctively Louisiana values.”
Outstanding Family Advocates
Six senators and fifteen representatives earned the Outstanding Family Advocate Award by scoring 100 percent on LFF’s Scorecard. These legislators will receive our esteemed Patrick Henry Award.
These awards are a highlight of our year – and although things may look a little different, we look forward to giving our network of pastors, churches, and families an opportunity to honor Louisiana lawmakers and inspire them as they write the next chapter of Louisiana history.
Thirty-nine legislators will be honored with the Family Advocate Award for scoring 80 to 99 percent.
Life & Liberty Awards
These 7 legislators are receiving a 2021 Life and Liberty Award for authoring key legislation that LFF merits as upholding Freedom and protecting Life and Liberty in Louisiana.
