Louisiana Legislative Session

The 2020 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature begins on March 9 and adjourns June 1. A full report of legislation of interest to the Louisiana Coalition For Common Sense can be found here.

SB 395 by Sen. Cloud is scheduled to be heard on the House floor today. This legislation will increase transparency in legal advertising by requiring advertisers to disclose how much of the judgments and settlements actually go to the plaintiff, after attorney fees and court costs are considered. Many legal advertisements in the state promise “jackpot justice,” but plaintiffs only get a small portion of the amount advertised; this bill seeks to prohibit false promises of big payouts that encourage people to file lawsuits against businesses.

SB 418 by Sen. Talbot, the Omnibus Premium Reduction Act of 2020 will be heard tomorrow on the House floor. The bill will:

  • Lower Louisiana’s jury trial threshold from $50,000 to $5,000
  • Reform the collateral source rule 
  • Repeal the direct action statute
  • Extend the prescriptions for tort actions from 1 year to 2 years for motor vehicle accidents
  • Eliminate the seat belt gag order
  • Require a mandatory 10 percent rate reduction for personal auto insurance

Please call or email House members and ask them to SUPPORT these two great pieces of legislation.
