2021 Louisiana Bills Vetoed

HB 20 Prohibits the use of private funds to pay election-related expenses.

Governor John Bel Edwards announced that he has vetoed House Bill 20, which would have prohibited local elections officials from using grant dollars to support elections, from the 2021 Legislative Session.

A press release from the Louisiana Office of the Governor indicated that Governor Edwards vetoed HB 20 because it is not necessary to protect the integrity of the election process. State and local election officials should retain the authority to apply for grants that would assist them in providing for safe and fair elections.

The Governor vetoed a similar bill last year because it limited elections officials’ ability to conduct safe elections.
