Abraham: Yes. Voted for Trump tax cuts. "Will lead to a more prosperous America for all."
Bel Edwards: Mixed. Supports Opportunity Zones Program. Amend penalties on privately held agriculture companies and taxes on families of fallen U.S. service members.
Eddie Rispone: Yes. "In 2017, Donald J. Trump implemented historic tax cuts that produced real results for the people of Louisiana."
Taxes: Support increased/decreased taxes on specific constituencies, like on the wealthy?
Abraham: No to "raising any taxes." Eliminate federal estate tax. Across-the-board state corporate tax decrease.
Bel Edwards: Unclear. Negotiated with legislature for sales tax increase to address state deficits. Limits on Louisiana's industrial tax break program.
Rispone: No on increasing. "We're not going to raise taxes." Change state constitution so tax hikes are voted on by the general public.
