New Revenue Study Commission website keeps public informed
The launch of a new Revenue Study Commission website this week will help keep lines of communication open between the public and those responsible for managing the state’s tax expenditures.
On Aug. 23, Dist. 45 State Rep. Joel Robideaux of Lafayette and Dist. 32 State Sen. Neil Riser of Columbia, the chairman and vice chairman of the Revenue Study Commission, announced the launch of the Commission’s website.
The site will provide access to meeting notices, archived video and documents from prior meetings, as well as provide the opportunity for the public to ask questions and leave comments.
Additionally, the site contains printable pdf forms for use by anyone who wishes to provide testimony at an upcoming commission hearing. The site will also offer links to all legislative websites, a list of commission members, along with contact information for commission staff.
“It will allow citizens of Louisiana who are unable to attend commission meetings an easy way to watch meetings and stay informed,” said Robideaux. “We want to keep lines of communication open with the public by allowing access to all available information, and by allowing individuals the opportunity to contact us with comments, questions or concerns.”
The Revenue Study Commission was established by Senate Concurrent Resolution 103 of the 2012 Regular Session with a purpose to study the state’s tax expenditures. The Commission also determines models or methods, which may be used to measure their performance, along with making recommendations relative to low-performing or antiquated tax expenditures.
