BGR Examines Constitutional Amendments on the Ballot

• Bureau of Governmental Research


On September 30, Louisiana voters were asked to approve 13 constitutional amendments. This report focuses on those that are amendments relevant to Greater New Orleans in four arenas: coastal restoration and flood protection, expropriation, the homestead exemption, and unfunded state mandates. In addition, BGR provides an expanded discussion of the proposed amendment on expropriation, which has particular significance for local efforts to address blighted property following the Hurricane Katrina disaster.
