|Hoffman tapped for family commission|
Rep. Frank Hoffman was one of 29 people selected by Gov. Bobby Jindal to serve on the Louisiana Commission on Marriage and Family.
The Louisiana Commission on Marriage and Family is an entity within the executive department, which serves to propose programs, policies, incentives and curriculum regarding marriage and family by collecting and analyzing data on the social and personal effects of marriage and child-bearing within the state.
"I'm very excited about this," said Hoffman, R-West Monroe. "In fact, it's one of the most exciting things to happen for me in the Legislature.
"It's obviously about promoting family values, and the commission is made up of some of the finest folks in the state," Hoffman continued. "I'm honored and humbled by this, and I'm pleased the governor thinks these issues are important enough to have a commission that deals with these things."
Hoffmann just recently learned he was appointed to the commission. While the commission's duties and goals have not been fully unveiled, Hoffmann has a few ideas of what the commission might tackle.
"I think we'll be looking at legislation that deals with faith-based initiatives as well as pro-life opportunities, which our state and governor strongly favor," Hoffman said. "We hope to bring together a lot of people with the expertise to have more of a healthy marriage and life emphasis within the state."
"I certainly think this is a move in the right direction for our state," Hoffman added.
The commission is comprised of a maximum of 29 members including the governor, the secretary of the Department of Social Services, the secretary of the Department of Health and Hospitals, the director of the Louisiana Workforce Commission, the commissioner of higher education, the superintendent of the Department of Education, the executive director of the Children's Cabinet, the executive director of the Office of Women's Policy, and the director of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families or their designees.
The remaining 20 members are gubernatorial appointees.
