LBP Presents

Two new background briefings by the Louisiana Budget Project provide in-depth information about state tax exemptions and the federal Affordable Care Act.

These presentations are designed as a tool for policymakers, the news media and the general public as Louisiana policymakers begins the complex task of implementing the 2010 health-care reform law and the Legislature begins its review of the 468 exemptions, credits and other loopholes in the state tax code.

They are available at LBP’s website,, by clicking the “LBP Presents” tab.

They include details about safety-net programs like Medicaid, tax credits for low-income workers and educational scholarships and help promote a better understanding of how safety-net programs affect different communities across our state.
