Louisiana’s economy is ranked the lowest in the country. The rest of America is enjoying an economic upswing and we are not sharing in that economic boom. The only way to get on track with the rest of the country is to create more jobs here in at home. I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of watching our youth move to other states to find decent jobs. We need to help the companies that are already here expand their business, and we need to attract new business to Louisiana. New and expanding business means more jobs here. Louisiana has historically always played a big role in oil and gas exploration. Oil and gas jobs have always been good, high-paying jobs here in Louisiana. No company that complies with the rules and regulations set by the regulating agency overseeing their industry should be penalized. That includes the oil and gas industry, the agriculture industry, the forestry industry, and all other industries.
