Our firm has been successful in many legislative issues, and we would like to mention a few of them.
Banking - Passed the multi-parish, interstate, and international banking laws that brought Louisiana banking into the 20th century.
Education - Passed the original "TOPS", a state supported tuition program for qualified students that became model legislation for similar programs in other states.
Fiscal Reform - Passed the Sub-S Corporation legislation, the first piece of fiscal reform package.
Environment - Passed vapor recovery legislation and oil spill legislation to comply with the Oil Pollution Act (OPA) for the barge industry in Louisiana. Other states used this legislation as a standard.
