House Committee Keeps Louisiana Personal Tax Repeal Alive
Written by 

Louisiana legislatureNothing personal, but the Louisiana personal income
tax repeal is alive and breathing.

Today, the Louisiana House Ways and Means Committee resuscitated an income tax repeal bill that took hits when it made its way to the Senate last week.

 The Senate had changed Sen. Rob Marionneaux’s, D-Livonia legislation, which would repeal the personal and corporate income tax. The Senate voted for a study to repeal the tax instead of an outright repeal. Opponents of the legislation are concerned about the massive cuts or other revenue measures that would be necessary if the tax would be approved.

The committee decided to maintain the study but to start a ten-year phase-out of the personal income tax starting in 2014 regardless the results of the study and a commission’s recommendations.

The House Committee legislation also eliminates the corporate tax from the repeal legislation. The House is considered to be the more conservative of the two Houses, both controlled by Republicans.

The repeal legislation heads to the House for debate. Governor Bobby Jindal has been mute on the legislation however, some politicos claim he favors maintaining the tax.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
