Rep. Paul Hollis ICTA member and Louisiana State Representative Paul Hollis (R-104) earned his second term today after his opponent officially withdrew from the race.

“It has been my distinct honor to represent House District 104 in the Louisiana House of Representatives,” said Rep. Hollis. “While I am proud of what we have accomplished during my first term, there is still more work to be done.

“From enhancing educational opportunities for our children and grandchildren to empowering small-business owners and job creators, protecting our God-given, Constitutional rights to ensuring limited, transparent government, I will work tirelessly in the years ahead to guarantee that Louisiana’s tomorrow is better than today.

“I am humbled by the strong support of friends and neighbors throughout the community and look forward to representing our conservative Louisiana values during my second term in the State House.”

First elected in 2011, Rep. Hollis is a fierce advocate for the small-business community and works tirelessly to foster job creation, growth, and investment by eliminating burdensome regulations and mandates.

For his efforts, Rep. Hollis has earned accolades from the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), the Southwest Chamber of Commerce, the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI), the Family Forum, and many others. In the legislature, Hollis serves on the Commerce, Education, and Retirement committees. He was also tapped by House Speaker Charles E. Kleckley to serve on the Louisiana Commission on Marriage and Family.

ICTA is honored to have Rep. Paul Hollis as an active member of the board. Paul has written a testimonial letter expressing how much the sales-tax exemption on precious metals and rare coins has helped the state of Louisiana, and declaring that it should be implemented in every state. ICTA uses this letter in testimonies in every state, whether the aim is to enact a sales-tax exemption or to prevent the repeal of one. This is invaluable to the industry.
