BATON ROUGE, La. (KALB) - Lawmakers in Baton Rouge revived an effort to change the threshold to recall a public official.
The Louisiana House passed an amended bill that reduces the number of signatures needed to trigger a recall election.
Representative Paul Hollis’ bill would require 50 percent of the number of people who voted in that specific election.
The original bill had called for a lower percentage.
The bill now heads to the Senate for a committee review.
