Date: Tuesday, May 5, 2009, 10:59 AMDear Louisiana Greens,In case you are not already aware, I wanted to alert you to HB 776, which is under consideration in the Louisiana Legislature this session.In summary, this bill would abolish Congressional party primaries for the Libertarian, Green, and Reform parties of Louisiana. It would do this by creating a new category ("major recognized political parties") which would only include the Republican and Democratic parties.You can read more about the bill and the harmful effects it could have on Louisiana's smaller political parties here.Randall T.
