Cameron Henry is currently serving his third term in the Louisiana House of Representatives. He represents District 82, which encompasses the areas of Old Metairie, Old Jefferson and Airline Park in Jefferson Parish. Cameron currently chairs one of the most important committees in the Louisiana Legislature, the House Appropriations Committee. He also serves on Joint Legislative Committee on Capital Outlay, Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget, Legislative Budgetary Control Council and the State Bond Commission.

 While serving on the Appropriations Committee, he has taken a stand against both the Jindal and Edwards administrations. In 2012, as vice-chairman of the committee under Governor Jindal, Cameron stood up to the administrations use of one-time funds to balance the state budget and was removed from the committee. Now, as chairman, Cameron is committed to working to pass a fiscally responsible budget that avoids mid-year cuts.

 Growing up in the greater New Orleans area, Cameron graduated from Jesuit High School in 1992. He then went on to obtain degrees from Louisiana State University (BA-Political Science) and Tulane University (MBA- Finance and Management). In 2014, Cameron was selected by the Washington Post as the “Top 40 Under 40” in the country. The Times-Picayune selected him as the third most influential elected official in Louisiana in 2016. Cameron currently resides in Metairie with his wife Jamie Domilise Henry and their four children.
