Legislative Day

The 2019 PJAL Legislative Day at the Hilton Capitol Center in Baton Rouge on May, 15, 2019, was a very successful day!  Members were able to pre-register online and check-in with the PJAL staff quickly and easily upon arrival.  PJAL President Glenn Benton of Bossier Parish led the meeting for members of the PJAL.  LA State Treasurer John Schroder and PJAL Executive Director Guy Cormier gave a thorough legislative update.  We would like to thank everyone in attendance for a great day!  We were powerful as 64 parishes united together as one to promote local government interests. Thank you all for being active members of our Association!
