Jindal says Pelican, Beacon Hill Institutes study shows plan helps economy

jindal-speechAfter encountering a difficult week in getting out its message on his tax swap program, Governor Jindal has offered a new study commissioned by conservative organization Pelican Institute for Public Policy and The Beacon Hill Institute, stating that the plan would boost the Louisiana economy.



Here is an email from Jindal's Communications director, Kyle Plotkin announcing the study:

This morning, The Beacon Hill Institute, in partnership with the Pelican Institute for Public Policy, released a study on Governor Jindal’s tax reform proposal. 

The study shows that the plan will create thousands of new jobs and boost income for Louisianians by an average of $910 per household. The Beacon Hill Institute confirms that tax reform would provide a “powerful incentive for Louisiana’s households and businesses to save and invest, spurring increases in employment and incomes.”

New Study: Governor Jindal’s Tax Reform Plan Benefits Louisiana Economy

The Pelican Institute For Public Policy, In Partnership With The Beacon Hill Institute

March 26, 2013 

“Today, the Pelican Institute for Public Policy, in partnership with the Beacon Hill Institute, released a new study showing how Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s tax reform plan will improve the Bayou State’s economy and lead to higher incomes for the state’s citizens. 

“It would boost investment in the state by $183 million, and increase real disposable income by $1.749 billion. That is, on average, an extra $910 for each of Louisiana’s households. 

Kevin Kane, President of the Pelican Institute, announced the study’s release by saying: ‘This study shows that Governor Jindal’s tax reform plan gives Louisiana a unique opportunity to grow its economy and boost the income of its citizens.’”

Last week, an independent policy organization, Public Affairs Research of Louisiana (PAR) issued its own report claiming the Jindal administration was using outdated numbers in presenting its position that would skew the results.  Also, to date, most of the major local newspapers have opposed the  plan.
