House fiscal conservatives set up PAC for efforts
A group of fiscal conservatives in the Louisiana House has set up a political action committee as part of continuing efforts to revamp the state's budget.
More than two dozen House members are involved with the group, calling itself the Budget Reform Campaign.
The effort, led by Lake Charles Rep. Brett Geymann, is designed to push for changes in the way Louisiana spends its money. Lawmakers in the group object to the use of patchwork, one-time funding to pay for ongoing programs and services and have criticized Gov. Bobby Jindal for the budgeting tactic.
Geymann says the PAC will raise money to pay for its website and promotional work, including possible mailers and advertising. He says the group also may hire someone to analyze budget data.
