Louisiana Business Summit


The Democrats addressing a state business summit today are saying communities should be able to decide which companies get exemptions.

For decades, only the state could choose who gets benefits.

The governor’s execuitive order changed all of that a few years ago.

This was a move he said kept schools, fire departments, and other local bodies in the loop.

The Governor’s changes to ITEP could face opposition in the legislature this spring. 

Republican State Senator Bodi White plans to sponsor a bill that would slice local control. 

He claims that move would eliminate a hurdle for businesses seeking exemptions.
