edwards himEdwards calls GOP ‘obstructionists’

    Gov. John Bel Edwards did not mince words over the actions of some GOP House members who are members of the Joint Budget Committee.
    The Committee last week blocked lucrative contract extensions sought by Edwards for the managed-care companies that coordinate services for 1.5 million Medicaid patients in Louisiana.

Have Louisiana’s storms of budget slashes and revenue bloats come to an end?  Months ago, the Governor John Bel Edwards administration announced that the state’s revenues have increased, thus, the fiscal year ended with a, get this, a surplus of over one hundred million dollars.

chick laIs there too much “sky is falling” projections for John Schroder in the upcoming Louisiana Treasurer’s Race? Perhaps, and possibly, this publication has contributed to the suspense and speculation.

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote that Schroder might have a very difficult time getting out the vote, sufficiently so, his opponent, Derrick Edwards, an African American Democrat, might somehow squeeze into the victory column. I noted that there were no real major contested elections in Louisiana other than the race for Orleans Parish. There is one election, a Northshore House race between two Republicans fighting for Schroder’s old House position, which he vacated to run for Treasurer.

crouere radioRoughly a week ago, when looking at the upcoming statewide elections, I threw out the possibility of an "upset of upsets" in favor of attorney and accountant Derrick Edwards, the Democratic Party candidate in the Louisiana Treasurer’s race, possibly winning against John Schroder, a Republican.

No doubt,  the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry supports tax reform and, in general, the key legislation coming out of the House of Representatives.  Supporting or taking positions on various state and national legislative instruments is what LABI does along with providing other services key to its members and the community.

Written by

gun insuranceSo have you purchased your gun insurance yet?  In case you shoot someone, there are insurance policies available to cover any liabilities you might face, pay for your bail if you are accused of a crime, cover your attorney fees, and even pay for any psychological therapy you might need.  So if you are going to fire away, nice to know that you are financially covered, right?

la heavenHow religious is Louisiana?

    Across America, states and regions differ in terms of their cultures, foods, and accents.  But one of the biggest distinguishing features is how religion impacts the people of each place.
    But while religion is widespread across the country, the importance of religion in people’s lives varies greatly from state to state.

peterson kcpIt's Official!! The controversy behind the Louisiana Democrats not backing the party candidate for Louisiana Treasurer is now of the past.

Earlier this week, the party's executive committee, via its party chairperson, Karen Carter Peterson, announced it was recommending the endorsement of Derrick Edwards.  Two days after the general election, the Louisiana Republican Party endorsed its candidate John Schroder.
