Senator Allain 2024 RS Kick-Off Newsletter


As we continue into another legislative session, I've been diligently working on several fronts to represent our district's interests and pave the way for a brighter future for District 21.

In preparation for the 2024 Regular Session, I had the pleasure of hosting St. James Episcopal Day School students for an enriching tour of the Capitol. It was heartening to see their enthusiasm as they delved into the legislative process, passing their very own "Pizza Party Bill," complete with an amendment to include Cheesy Sticks—a small but significant victory for the students. 

Additionally, I recently met with the legislative teams at Nicholls State University, Fletcher Technical Community College, and SLCC Young Memorial Campus in Morgan City for campus tours. During the tours, I stressed the importance of higher education, workforce development, and safeguarding funding for our local colleges.

In Jeanerette, I was honored to attend a fundraiser benefiting St. Jude's Children's Hospital with my favorite legislative assistant.

I was honored to host a community meeting in Pierre Part, where I provided a comprehensive legislative update on the recent special sessions addressing violent crime and redistricting.

I’m humbled to be appointed to several Senate Committees, including Agriculture, Forestry, Aquaculture, Rural Development, Insurance, Natural Resources, Revenue and Fiscal Affairs, and serving as an Interim Member on the Joint Legislative Committee on Capital Outlay. Rest assured, I will tirelessly leverage these positions to advocate for our district's best interests.

I'm excited to highlight some of the critical legislation I've filed during the upcoming regular session:

  • Senate Bill 250: Aims to combat frivolous lawsuits that often burden our legal system and inflate insurance premiums for consumers by changing when and why someone can sue an insurance company directly, especially in cases where the insured person may not be able to be sued directly due to bankruptcy, insolvency, or other reasons. This bill is a step towards preventing bad actors who maliciously target insurance companies for their deep pockets while ensuring fair compensation and coverage protection for legitimate claims.

  • Senate Bill 40: By broadening the committee's scope to include additional experts and stakeholders, we can enhance seafood safety standards, bolster our local seafood industries, and capitalize on the quality of the products from Louisiana’s seafood industry. 

I am grateful for your continued support and encouragement. My office is always open to ideas, constituents, and any feedback you may have on legislative matters. With your input, we can build a Louisiana that our future generations can be proud of.

God Bless,

Senator Robert Allain, III
