Shouldn’t lawmakers follow the law? Wednesday, Sep 10 2014
On July 16, 2012, it was announced that on August 9, 2012, Gordon Monk, the then-Legislative Fiscal Officer was retiring.
Members of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees held interviews to fill the post. Over two years later the leges have failed to elect someone as the Lege Fiscal Officer (“LFO”)
They did appoint a former lege staffer as the “temporary LFO.”
State law requires there to be a LFO elected by a majority of the elected members of both the House and Senate. See law here.
However, two lege sessions have come and gone and the leges have failed to elect or even conduct more interviews for a LFO as required by law.
Apparently, state laws don’t apply to lawmakers in Louisiana.
It’s time we got some answers from the leges. Any of them care to explain?
