Louisiana Business Org. LABI Forms Tech Advocacy Council
Written by 

 The Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI), the state’s largest statewide business association, announced today the creation of the new LABI Technology Advocacy Council, which is dedicated to being the public policy champion for businesses that are creators of technology; IT managers; distributors of technology; and users of technology applications.

 

LABI is actively seeking input from its members to identify and prioritize business needs in this critical area and craft a lobbying agenda for LABI’s 2012 Program of Work. The first meeting of the Council will be held soon and all LABI members who express an interest in it will be invited to attend.

Michael Olivier will chair the Technology Advocacy Council for 2012.  Olivier also serves as CEO of the Louisiana Committee of 100 for Economic Development, Inc. and Chairman of the Louisiana Technology Council.

 

In a recent statement, Chairman Olivier said, “I’m excited about enhancing the partnership between the Louisiana Technology Council and LABI.  By working together and speaking with a unified voice, we can make significant changes at the public policy level to support the development of new technologies and innovations that will help drive Louisiana’s economy.”

 

LABI President, Dan Juneau noted that the Technology Advocacy Council will support, not duplicate, the activities of the Louisiana Technology Council, and will focus LABI’s strong and proven public advocacy apparatus on policies and issues that enhance technology’s role in Louisiana’s economy.

 

LABI staff lobbyist Brian Landry will serve as Director of the new Technology Advocacy Council.  For more information, contact Brian at (225) 215-6629 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

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?

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.
