Action Requested:
Please call your representative in the House. Say, "Please vote 'No' on Senate Bill 303." You can find your representative using HSLDA's legislative toolbox.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose. While there may be some good ideas in SB 303, this twenty-three page bill is an effort to use Louisiana law to promote the interests of a national child advocacy organization, the National Children's Alliance. Louisiana should write its own laws on reforming the child abuse system, not implement the policies of nationwide child advocacy groups.
