If they fail to comply with the requirement to remain in the state, they will be forced to "repay 50% of the award amount received for each full academic year, or fraction thereof, for every year he fails to" "demonstrate proof of residency in Louisiana for a time period equal to the number of academic years, or fraction thereof, of award received..."
Sen. Luneau's bill includes an administering agency that will require "as many of the following as deemed necessary to verify residency":
Motor Vehicle Registration
State Income Tax Returns
Any Other Proof As Required By The Administering Agency By Rule
You gotta admit...
that’s one way to guarantee a workforce!
This oppressive bill will be heard in Sen. Ed Committee tomorrow (4/20) upon adjournment of the full Senate which meets beginning at 9:00 A.M. This means that there is time to contact Sen. Luneau between tonight and sometime tomorrow morning--and, possibly, as late as the afternoon.
Please call, email, & fax Sen. Luneau and DEMAND that he PULL THIS BILL! Tell him you do not want your children to be Indentured Servants of the State!
Please, share with your contacts and ask that they do the same.
