(See LRS 47:337.23) The statute also creates an advisory committee to oversee the project with one of the advisory committee members being appointed by the governor from three candidates selected by the LATA. This committee was created to work with & advise the LATA's Advisory Committee member.

The Uniform Return & Remittance Committee is monitoring the URRAC for ParishE-File on behalf of the LATA.
