PIA Grassroots Works


Yesterday on the House Floor, we witnessed the power of grassroots. We want to thank all of you that reached out to contact your legislator — it works! As we listened to HB 137 being considered on the House Floor, one by one, Representatives stood up to question this bill and stated that they had been contacted by members of the Professional Insurance Agents of Louisiana who were opposed to this legislation. While we did not kill the bill, we still consider our efforts a huge success, because we were only two votes shy from killing it. They needed 53 votes to pass the bill and they received 54. Therefore, there is still a great deal of work to be done. And, you should be encouraged that your voice was heard and can make a difference.

Please click here to see how your representative voted on HB 137 and be sure to contact them to thank them if they voted with us. By the way, an absent vote is still a vote with us. And, if they voted in favor of the bill, we encourage you to still contact them to say you respect their decision and understand they will next hear the Senate version (SB 96) and you would like the opportunity to better explain our position to them. Ask them to follow-up with you directly to discuss the issue further or you can also refer them to PIA.

Make certain that you know how your representative voted before you send any correspondence as the two letters prepared for your use are very different:

Please click here if you would like to thank your legislator for voting "no" to HB 137. A prepared, fully-editable letter is available.

Please click here if your legislator voted "yes" to HB 137 and you would like to offer to explain PIA's position on SB 96. A prepared, fully-editable letter is available.

Again, we appreciate your efforts. If you did not respond to this grassroots call, it is not too late. We hope that you can see the true difference it makes and will respond the next time we send you a Legislative Alert on these two bills. Thanks so much!
