Attorney General Opinions

#12-0069 - Tuesday, May 15, 2012
The provisions of the Louisiana Dual Officeholding and Dual Employment Law, La. R.S. 42:61, et seq., are applicable to the holding of two or more public offices and/or employments, but are inapplicable where one of the two positions is held on a contract basis. Thus, the dual officeholding statutes would not prohibit an elected councilman of the City of Crowley from at the same time serving as the Acadia Parish attorney on a contract basis.
