HB 706 by Berthelot (Last Action – Act No. 274)

Relative to the mayor pro tempore presiding at meetings of the board of aldermen in the

absence of the mayor, authorizes the board of aldermen to select one of its members to

preside at a meeting of the board if both the mayor and mayor pro tempore are unable to

attend a meeting of the board. Provides that the mayor pro tempore or a board member

presiding in stead of the mayor pro tempore has all rights and powers granted to the mayor

with regard to presiding at a meeting of the board. Authorizes the mayor pro tempore to

perform all duties of the mayor if the mayor is unable to carry out the duties of his office due

to physical or mental disability as determined by a licensed physician. Provides that the

mayor pro tempore has no additional authority to perform the duties of the mayor except as

provided in HB 706 or upon the written consent of the mayor.

HB 889 by Champagne (Last Action – House Committee)

Relative to certain businesses subject to taxes levied by economic development districts that

are created by parishes and municipalities and that are authorized to issue bonds secured by

a pledge of tax increments (TIF districts) and to levy, subject to voter approval, ad valorem

taxes, sales taxes, and hotel occupancy taxes, would have provided for an exemption for

certain businesses from sales and use taxes levied by any such district. Specifically, the

exemption would have applied to any business that had a license or permit from the parish

or municipality to operate at a particular location at the time the location would have become

included within the boundaries of such a district. Would have been prospectively applicable

to businesses that were included in such district prior to the effective date of proposed law

except to the extent that such taxes were pledged to the repayment of bonds or other

obligations.
