News Release
Fri, Mar 9, 2018
House Bill No. 563 repeals provisions relative to landscape horticulturist. A repeal of these licenses would have such an adverse effect on licensed landscapers, garden centers, wholesale nurseries, allied suppliers and the state of Louisiana's economy. Please stand with us and support these licenses and regulations that are already in place! House Bill 563 has been assigned to the House Ag Committee. A list of the members of that committee (email and phone numbers) can be found in the link above. We need to hit the hardest right away! If we can kill this bill in the committee, it will be dead.
