BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- The cost of Gov. Bobby Jindal's security detail has doubled to more than $3 million since the Republican governor entered office nearly eight years ago, but the Louisiana State Police says the hefty price increase isn't largely driven by Jindal's frequent travel. Protective services for the governor cost just under $1.5 million in the 2007-08 budget year when Jindal first took office.

A blueprint for Louisiana
Monday, 12 October 2015 15:05 Written by
In politics, the biggest sin isn't lying — it's telling too much of the truth, especially at election time. That's why candidates for governor offer mostly general ideas about how to deal with Louisiana's daunting fiscal challenges.
