Four amendments on weekend ballot

Voters throughout the state will be asked to decide on four proposed amendments to the Louisiana Constitution on the October 12 ballot. This year’s lineup is especially challenging, as the PAR guide to the four amendments in question call them “among the more arcane proposals citizens have faced yet.” The guide, available for free at www.parlouisiana.org, was used extensively in compiling this information.

Amendment 1: Offshore Goods Property Tax Exemption

Currently, businesses and homeowners pay property tax to local governments based on the assessed value of their property on an annual basis. The Constitution allows certain exceptions, such as homestead exemptions for homeowners and the Industrial Tax Exemption Program for manufacturers.
