An introduction to the legislative branch of
state government revised quadrennially
and intended to serve as background
information for newly elected members of
the Louisiana House of Representatives.
This new edition of the guide
discusses House procedure as it reviews the
essentials of the legislative process. It
describes the staff services and information
sources available to House members,
including technology that gives the public
easier and greater access to the
legislative process and provides vital
sources of information to aid House
members in their roles as lawmakers and as
problem solvers for their constituents.
We hope that this guide demonstrates the
many ways in which the entire staff of the House can ably assist each of you
- and how
much we want to do so.
