GATORPACToday, Governor Bobby Jindal highlighted the start of construction for Sasol’s $8.1 billion ethane cracker complex as company and regional officials gathered for groundbreaking at the Calcasieu Parish site. The world-scale petrochemical complex will include an ethane cracker and six chemical manufacturing plants, to be built near Sasol’s existing Westlake, Louisiana, facilities. The project will roughly triple Sasol’s chemical production capacity in the United States.

 

According to the state, Sasol will create 500 direct new jobs with an average annual salary of $88,000, plus benefits. Louisiana Economic Development estimates the project will result in 2,395 new indirect jobs, and the company estimates 5,000 construction jobs will be generated by the project during the next several years.

DEMOS BLAST CALDWELL

The Louisiana Democratic Party has blasted Attorney General Buddy Caldwell for joining in “on an out-of-state lawsuit Thursday that would continue to allow employers to discriminate against same-sex couples when administering family and leave benefits. A change to FMLA that will go into effect today prevents such discrimination.”

The Chairwoman of the Party said:

“Attorney General Caldwell is actively trolling the legal system in a desperate attempt to save his own career,” said Senator Karen Carter Peterson, chair of the Louisiana Democratic Party. “At a time when our state is facing the largest budget shortfall ever, AG Caldwell would rather squander the resources of his department in a futile attempt to cause additional harm to families in crisis – all to score political points from shrinking special interest groups.”

The Louisiana Democratic Party also said, "The lawsuit in question came from the office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. A majority of Americans now live in states where marriage equality is the law of the land. In every single challenge made to prevent equal treatment the courts have ultimately ruled that baring some loving couples from the benefits and responsibilities of civil marriage is unconstitutional."

 

MANESS, VITTER POP GATORPAC

Rob Maness, Tea Party leader and former US Senate candidate had a good week.

On Tuesday, March 24, 2015, GatorPAC hosted a meet-and-greet featuring Col. Rob Maness and Senator DavidVitter(R-LA) at the head quarters of the Family Research Council. 

Other attendees included Rep. Garrett Graves (LA-06), Rep. Charles Boustany (LA-03), and Rep. John Fleming (LA-04), all members of the Louisiana Congressional Delegation.

“I want to thank SenatorVitterand the members of the Louisiana Congressional Delegation for their support and I look forward to working with them to advance GatorPAC’s mission of restoring accountability in government, constitutional principles, liberty, certainty and prosperity,” Maness said.

Col. Rob Maness launched GatorPAC on December 16, 2014, as the vehicle to give liberty minded citizens the teeth and the tools to join together to take our government back.  

Since it’s launch, GatorPAC and Col. Maness have received high praise from conservative leaders such as Senator Ted Cruz and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

    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.
