After a week of difficult negotiations, the House has approved legislation that sets Louisiana’s sales tax rate at 4.45 percent through mid-2025. That would be enough revenue to prevent cuts to higher education and the TOPS scholarship program next fiscal year.

Three sales tax bills that raise revenue to different amounts are heading to the House floor for debate tomorrow after they received approval by the House Ways and Means tomorrow. Baton Rouge Representative Paula Davis received the most support as it renews an expiring one-cent penny by four-tenths of a cent. She calls it a great compromise.
“We did not pass Representative Harris’ bill at .3, we failed to pass Representative Leger’s bill at .5. Compromise is all about meeting in the middle so I thought great let’s try this out.”
