Rep. Valarie Hodges District 64

Dear Friends,

     The 2019 Legislative Session has begun, and I pledge to work diligently on behalf of my district and our state along with my fellow legislators. We will work to cut spending where possible with the least amount of harm to vital state agencies and institutions as well as the hard working taxpayers.

     I have and will continue to introduce and/or support legislation that is fiscally responsible, enhances homeland security, opposes sanctuary cities, strengthens family values and religious liberties, toughens abortion laws, prevents human trafficking, supports Second Amendment rights, and improves our educational systems and our health and hospitals systems.  You can find details of bills, agendas and, videos of committee and floor debates for both the House and the Senate by visiting www.legis.la.gov.  
    
    In 2014, I formed the on-going Comite River Diversion Canal (CRDC) Project Task Force (HCR51) and currently serve as chairwoman. I believed then and still believe now that the CRDC Project is a vital component of a comprehensive Amite River Basin flood plain management plan which will reduce the effects of flooding in my district and the Greater Baton Rouge area. The August 2016 flood was the fourth largest natural disaster in U. S. history costing an estimated $8 billion dollars. 
 
    Great News!! On April 17, 2019 a groundbreaking ceremony was held to signify the start of the construction of the CRDC Project.   As a result of the 2016 flood, I have fortified my commitment to see the CRDC Project completed. It has an anticipated completion date Spring of 2021.
 
      I am privileged and honored to serve as your voice at the Capitol. Please contact me, if you have any concerns about things in our district and our state. Your input is important to me as we work together to build a stronger, more secure Louisiana and create a bright future for our children.

Sincerely yours,
Valarie
