Rep. Leger blasts Jindal's NY Times oped in light of LSU exigencies
  // Thursday, 23 April 2015 16:04 //

legerRep. Walter “Walt” J. Leger III of New Orleans, who represents District 91 in the state legislature and serves as speaker pro tempore in the Louisiana House of Representatives, has publicly expressed the dismay many in our state feel regarding proposed discrimination legislation. Today Rep. Leger released the following statement in response to Gov. Bobby Jindal’s vocal support for such a bill:

“It is incredibly disappointing that on the day after LSU was forced to announce financial exigency in their budget for the coming year, amounting to an academic bankruptcy plan, our Governor, instead of writing an Op-Ed in a Louisiana paper extolling the value and necessity of funding our flagship university, chooses to write an Op-Ed for The New York Times to spread a message of divisiveness. It is truly a sad day for Louisiana, when one must look to New York to hear from the Governor of Louisiana. Hopefully the legislature will address the truly urgent issues and work to improve and strengthen our communities and economy in a display of fairness, equity, and opportunity for all Louisianians.”
