Please support House Bill 391

The Louisiana Sportsmen’s Coalition asks you to urge Legislators to support House Bill 391.

This is a great opportunity to email and call Legislators and demand they support public water access.

HB 391 would guarantee public access to certain tidally-influenced waters. LaSC representatives are working through the proper channels and requesting that some adjustments be made to the bill. Even in its current form, HB 391 is a massive step in the right direction for the thousands of anglers and tourists who recreate on our waters. It is also an amazing opportunity for LaSC members and supporters to let their voices be heard.

This bill is the opportunity we’ve been waiting for.


Email Legislators quickly and easily here. You can email individual Legislators, all Reps/Sens or all members of the House Committee on Civil Law and Procedure with one click of the mouse.

The 2018 Regular Session begins Monday, and HB 391 will begin in the House Committee on Civil Law and Procedure. When it comes time for the Committee to hear the bill, expect a loud call-to-action from LaSC that will include requesting a strong presence at the State Capitol.

This Committee Hearing will be the first step of an on-going process. Therefore, there will be more steps that come later in this Legislative process, and your vocal participation during all of these steps is vital.

LaSC has put in lots of work behind the scenes to reach a point where the Louisiana Legislature can debate this issue in a public forum, and we thank Rep. Kevin Pearson for sponsoring this important bill.
