Louisiana social politics: Sleepless Jindal, Torn Scalise, Busy Cassidy
Written by 

jindal-obamaJust because the Louisiana elections are over, Bill Cassidy now has four US Senate committee assignments, and Christmas tidings are tidying up, does not mean we should forget about Louisiana politics, does it? 

Of course not.


Actually, there's plenty happening on the local political front even if there is no government shutdown to scream over.  Who can forget the fact that our governor is running for President, our Congressman Steve Scalise and House Whip is taking some heat for siding with the House Speaker rather than the Tea Party or that Mary Landrieu will soon be a private person, living somewhere between Washington DC and Louisiana or her mom's  attic.

I mean, this is BIG POLITICAL NEWS.  

So, far all of those in Bayoubuzz land following the hot political news stories of the moment, here are some emails and social media items i thought you might find of interest:


 Today, Governor Bobby Jindal and qalytics LLC Managing Partner Larry Kelly highlighted the company will relocate from Seattle to the Louisiana Technology Park in Baton Rouge. The software testing and quality assurance company will create 34 new permanent jobs at the tech park, at an annual salary of $27,000. Louisiana Economic Development estimates the firm’s expansion to Baton Rouge will result in an additional 35 new indirect jobs, for a total of more than 65 new jobs in the Capital Region.

The company will specialize in quality assurance and other development and publishing services for the digital media industry from the new Baton Rouge headquarters.

Governor Jindal said, “Every day, more and more high-tech firms like qalytics are recognizing that Louisiana is the perfect location to grow and expand their businesses. Thanks to our thriving job market and strong business climate for tech investment, software companies continue to move to our state and provide outstanding career opportunities for our skilled workforce. We look forward to the innovative projects that qalytics and our fast -growing tech industry will continue to bring to Louisiana.”


Fighting the president's illegal amnesty
Two weeks ago, I helped pass a bill by Congressman Yoho (R-FL) to block President Obama's attempt at illegal amnesty. In addition, this past week we passed a 2015 Appropriations Bill which includes a clause that sets up a battle in just four weeks with the president on immigration when we finally get the reinforcements of a Republican Senate. This bill also brings discretionary spending to its lowest spending levels in nearly a decade, and cuts the funding of agencies like the IRS, EPA, and other radical proposals by Obama.

When the new Republican Senate is sworn in early January, we will move legislation to Barack Obama's desk that blocks any funding to implement his attempt at executive amnesty. The new American Congress will hold the president accountable for his lawless, unconstitutional executive action on immigration. We will also be putting bills on his desk to repeal and replace Obamacare, cut wasteful Washington spending, lower tax rates to get our economy moving again, and approve important energy projects like Keystone XL. Know that in January, Congress, with a Republican majority in the House and Senate, will be in the strongest position to fight this president's attempts at executive overreach.

    Is political partisanship raising its ugly head again in the face of another Louisiana disaster?  Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards thinks so.

    Edwards got some rough treatment from a congressional committee in Washington, D.C. when he testified before it recently about the state’s response to flood problems.
