2016 ACE: Award of Excellence
Faced with a $1.6 billion budget deficit, the Louisiana Legislature voted to raise taxes on employers and individuals by more than $600 million in 2015. In response, LABI issued the 2015 Legislative Scorecard to increase member awareness of lawmakers' support for maintaining the size and operations of state government rather than growing the economy and creating jobs. Supported by an integrated marketing campaign, including advertising, public relations and social media, LABI generated significant awareness of key state economic and governance issues and created a valuable resource for members to assess legislators' voting records in advance of statewide gubernatorial and legislative elections.
