The Louisiana chapter of the Americans For Prosperity is preparing to be just as involved in the upcoming regular session of the state Legislature as it was in the 2016 sessions.

That means targeted mailers, door-to-door operations and robocalls in legislative districts as well as digital media buys.

State director John Kay said AFP will be making a big push against any kind of gas tax and any effort to extend the additional penny sales tax past 2018.

“We could be interested in broadening the sale tax base if it’s coupled with a decrease in the sales tax rate or even an income tax change that moves us to revenue neutral,” said Kay.

AFP will likewise advocate for spending reforms in the regular session.
