State Representatives Alan Seabaugh of Shreveport and Dodie Horton from Haughton agree that they will vote no on any "revenue enhancement legislation", i.e., tax increases that come up for vote during the current special session of the state legislature.

Seabaugh and Horton, both members of the House Ways and means committee, voted no on every one of the committee's measures, four of which were passes and now go to the House floor for debate.

Seabaugh said he found irony in criticism from Democrat legislators who scolded the Shreveport rep for missing Thursday's session, since "I tend to vote in a way they don't like."

Regarding the measures now making their way through the legislative process - one of which would eliminate Louisiana's hunting and fishing and school supplies "tax free" weekends - Horton says, "I'm going to fight tooth and nail to make sure (the bills) die on the floor."
