Louisiana Lawsuit Fairness PAC Announces Legislative Endorsements

The Louisiana Lawsuit Fairness Political Action Committee, (LLFPAC) today announced their endorsement of 47 candidates who are running to serve the people of Louisiana in the legislature next year.

“The Lawsuit Fairness PAC endorses candidates who understand the importance of lawsuit reform and are committed to supporting pro-business policies to keep Louisiana’s economy going strong and ensure a fair legal system for everyone,” said Boysie Bollinger, who chairs the group.

“Louisiana is a great state, but our hostile legal environment is holding us back,” Bollinger added. “When it comes to lawsuit fairness, Louisiana has long been ranked among one of the worst states in the country. Our current legal system encourages excessive litigation, discourages economic growth, and increases the cost of settling lawsuits—we all pay these costs through lost jobs and investments and higher insurance premiums. We hope to work with these and other lawmakers in the legislature next year to help change that.”
