Future Of Louisiana Office Of Group Benefits--League Luncheon
Written by 

 JindalThe possible sale of the Louisiana Office of Group Benefits (OGB) is the topic being discussed at the "Lunch With the League" (LWL) sponsored by the League of WoMen Voters of Baton Rouge (LWVBR). 

 

One of the most highly controversial proposals affecting Louisiana taxpayers and government workers is privatization of the OGB.

 The August "Lunch With the League" (LWL) will be held on Tuesday, August 16, 11:30 a.m. at Drusilla Place Catering, 3482 Drusilla Lane, Baton Rouge.

 Last month, in a press release, the Division of Administration announced that Morgan Keegan “has been selected through a competitive RFP process to provide financial advisory services to evaluate the Office of Group Benefits and recommend a course of action for administering the office in the best interest of both plan members and the taxpayers.”

 The press release also said, “Once a contract is agreed upon, the financial advisor will, over the coming months, conduct a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of OGB and the health care market, and provide recommendations to the administration as to the proper administrative structure of OGB. “

 The League has announced that its invited forum panelists are:  Governor Bobby Jindal and/or his representative Commissioner Paul Rainwater or Chief of Staff/Executive Counsel Stephen Waguespack; G. Rolfe Miller, Managing Director, Morgan Keegan or the MK Representative handling the OGB contract; state Senator Butch Gautreaux, Chair, Senate Retirement Committee; Tommy Teague, Former CEO, OGB (Institutional knowledge); Stephen Monaghan, President, Louisiana Federation of Teachers (All Active employees); and Frank Jobert, Executive Director, Retired State Employees of Louisiana Association (All Retired Employees).”

 On Friday, League President, Jean Armstrong sent out a press release stating  the Governor’s office has not yet responded to the invitation.  Also, according to the press release, Morgan Keegan Managing Director, G. Rolfe Miller has written to her stating that "I spoke with our investment bankers last night and they indicated that we have not been hired yet to serve as adviser.  Therefore it would be inappropriate for us to participate in this Forum." 

When questioned late Friday , Michael DiResto Director of Communications & Strategic Initiatives for the Division of administration told Bayoubuzz in an email that “Morgan Keegan was selected as a result of the RFP process, but that a contract would still need to be agreed upon, which is still pending”.“ 

The event is open to the public.  General Admission Tickets are $25.00.  Member Discounted Tickets are $20.00.  Reservations are encouraged to ensured seating.  To purchase tickets, go to: www.lwvbr.org  or send your request to:  This email address is being protected from spambots.

wag edwards tweetIn the age of rapid response, social media, President and CEO of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry took to twitter to apparently poke the Democrat Governor and to promote his own tour of his own legislative package, or legislative outlook tour, beginning today.

Today, Stephen Waguespack of LABI tweeted in response to The Advocate’s Tyler Bridges article that John Bel Edwards would be delaying his release of his tax overhaul package that was scheduled for today.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
