Louisiana implemented an election bill, but Democratic Gov. Edwards vetoed other bills that can be passed by a special session. of the Louisiana legislature in July.
We received this letter from a reader today about the events in Louisiana:
Due to its bold public scrutiny of the major issues facing Louisiana, The Gateway Pundit was very instrumental in the successful final passage of several critical elements of the legislation that greatly benefit the citizens of Louisiana.
One bill we wrote about was the electoral bill.

Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin wants to buy $ 100 MILLION worth of voting machine equipment, but Louisianans are rejecting
Yesterday a new bill was signed by the governor moving Louisiana to a paper-based system. All Americans want is free and fair elections:
Governor Edwards signs legislation that will begin the process of changing Louisiana from an electronic voting system to a paper-based system. Under a paper system, voters will receive a paper ballot that they can view to ensure their vote was correctly tabulated, and that can later be audited by hand should the need arise.
Slidell Sen. Sharon Hewitt said her bill will further strengthen the integrity of our elections.
“The great thing about a paper-based system is that it is auditable, it is secure, and it is significantly cheaper than our 30-year-old obsolete machines,” Hewitt said. “With an electronic system you press a button to cast a vote and that’s it, so in the end there is no way to audit the result.”
The state is currently looking for new voting machines, but Hewitt said this bill directs the Secretary of State to wait until we know exactly what we’re looking for to move forward.
But sadly, the Democratic governor of Louisiana vetoed some good bills. According to our reader, these were:
Due to TGP’s efforts, successful legislation includes bills that prohibit massive and unconstitutional intrusion into individual liberty (House bills 349 and 498 prohibit government discrimination against citizens who do not submit to to the Covid vaccine); prohibit the imposition of civil liability on private employers who refuse to require their employees to receive the Covid vaccine (House Bill 103); and protect the integrity of women’s sports by prohibiting biological males from participating in women’s sports (Senate Bill 156).
Our reader added that these bills had veto-proof margins and the legislature now needs to meet again to overcome the governor’s vetoes:
Fortunately, the referenced bills passed with veto-proof margins in both the Louisiana House and Senate, and now there is a massive push among Louisiana voters across the state for a special veto session to override the governor’s reprehensible veto on these bills. The only problem is whether the Conservative leadership in the House and Senate has the courage and willingness to aggressively pursue a veto session and coordinate votes to override the governor’s veto. All eyes are on Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, Clay Schexnayder, and Republican Speaker of the Senate, Page Cortez. These men have the power and ability to ensure not only that an active veto session takes place beginning July 20, but that both Houses vote to override these vetoes.
