Housing

As a board member on the Louisiana Housing Corporation, I understand firsthand the need for affordable housing in Louisiana and throughout the United States. I will offer a Senate bill within my first year to establish additional commercial fees on new commercial developments based on the need for housing generated by new and expanding businesses. Revenue generated by the fees will be used to help fund the development of affordable housing. Also, this Senate bill will increase federal funding to states to increase affordable housing development projects and reduce homelessness.
