Senator Troy E. Brown   -  District 2

Welcome to my Legislative Web page. It is indeed an honor and privilege to represent the citizens of District 2 in the Louisiana State Senate. District 2 is mainly drawn from what is more commonly known as “The River Parishes”, which encompasses parts of Ascension, Assumption, Iberville, Lafourche, St Charles, St John the Baptist, and St. James parishes. A large portion of West Baton Rouge Parish is also a part of this newly created District although it is not referred to as a “River Parish”. 

As Vice-President of the Senate Committee on Environmental Quality, and a standing member of the Insurance and also Transportation, Highways, and Public Works Committees, I am well positioned to address the many issues that exist throughout the District. I intend to provide the people of District 2 with a solution-oriented form of leadership based on my many years of business accomplishments over the last twenty years throughout this district. 

This page has been developed as a tool to learn about the ongoing works of the Louisiana Legislature relevant to issues and concerns that surround District 2, along with issues and concerns that affect the entire geographic River Region. Please contact me at your convenience to offer comments or ask questions. My staff and I look forward to hearing from you as we stand ready to assist in whatever manner necessary. 

Legislative Achievements During the 2012-2016 Term: 

2013 Legislative Session

1. Created SEL-GO (Southeast Louisiana Task force for Growth and Opportunity) with the passing of SR 97 during the 2013 Legislative Session.  SEL-GO will assess the need to create a governmental body that would design policy and programs funded by grants and government-approved funds that support the development of human resources, transportation, health care, law enforcement, housing, education, and infrastructure in District 2. 

2. Introduced the study to identify the need for legislation that would provide a method for corporations to enter into agreements local municipalities and parishes to fund local infrastructure expansion or improvement projects with SR 91.  Participation by corporations would offset future tax obligations to local areas as agreed upon between participating entities.

3. Secured $45.2 million in HUD recovery funds in the Community Development Block Grant Program with SCR 35, redirecting the funding to additional areas in District 2 related to rebuilding after hurricane Isaac.

4.  Initiated a study by the Department of Economic Development and the executive director of the Louisiana Workforce Commission to provide contractual and employment information relative to business and employers pursuant to the Gulf Opportunity Zone and Quality Jobs Programs with SR 92.  This study will investigate whether or not fair and effective employment practices are taking place.
