by Stephen Waguespack, President and CEO of Louisiana Association of Business and Industry

The myriad of political and policy changes afoot in the State Capitol have dominated many a headline over the last year or so. We have a Louisiana economy in recession, a state budget seemingly in constant deficit, a host of previously passed reforms under reconsideration and an increasingly chaotic political landscape. Negative consequences of every possible scenario are well documented in excruciating detail, although real analysis on consensus-driven plans to reform the system is much harder to come by. While fiscal analysts remain unsure of the actual amount of taxes raised just last month, there is already a growing drumbeat for more taxes this summer.


Should Louisiana not be able to pay for the roughly $300 bill for the popular tuition-assistance TOPS program for college students, it appears both the Louisiana governor and legislature could agree upon cross-the-board-cuts, instead of some other device, such as reducing the access to TOPS by the lower ACT scoring students.

Today, the Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Thomas Harris, as instructed by Governor John Bel Edwards, intervened in the 39 coastal damage lawsuits that have been filed by Plaquemines, Jefferson, and Cameron Parishes. The filing of a petition to intervene for the State of Louisiana by DNR follows the intervention of Attorney General Jeff Landry in the same cases.


Is Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser on to a good idea concerning the Motion Picture Investor Tax Credit that can both keep the film industry shooting prodigiously in Louisiana and as a result not have the state lose money hand over fist?

Think that Donald Trump has troubles in Wisconsin?

Did the women and minorities and Trump Haters not want to run their fingers through the longest comb-over in the world?  Did they swing their votes to the Socialist candidate and Grandpa Munster?

Since the time of Charles Dickens, the plight of children in state custody has been the source of great public anxiety. In the almost 200 years since Oliver Twist was published, many of us think of starving children immortalized by young Oliver who received a beating for asking, “Please sir, may I have some more?” 

Sure, as shooting, when it was announced that Fitch was lowering Louisiana's credit rating, the blame-game went in full gear.

Republican Treasurer John Kennedy and US Senate candidate announced the bad news and said, "This is what happens when you spend more than you take in for seven years running. It's disappointing but not surprising," said Treasurer Kennedy. "The rating agencies are tired ofLouisiana's accounting gimmicks and spending practices."


Say what?
A day after Bayoubuzz published a column and an audio clip from Jeff Crouere  in which the radio talk show host and Bayoubuzz columnnist suggests that a mileage increase for the police force and firemen is not needed--especially since the city's top cop reportedly claims he doesn't need the money, out from nowhere comes a bombshell.

This will be a difficult read because of its complexity… but the complexity makes the situation all the more dangerous.

Recording of Police Chief Harrison:   bit.ly/1RWD3sh

In a recording provided by an anonymous source exclusively to Ringside Politics, NOPD Chief Michael Harrison claims that " money is not the problem, or I don't think it is. " The recording took place at a recent meeting in which the Police Chief outlined the needs of his department. 

If it's talk radio, it's Donald Trump time.
Whether you’re listening to political talk radio in Cheese-land Wisconsin, Tower-land New York, or Bayou-land, Louisiana, the topic of discussion, just as it is on television news—none other than Donald Trump.
This morning was no different as WGSO radio talk show host, Jeff Crouere and Stephen Sabludowsky, Publisher of Bayoubuzz discussed “The Donald”.  Today, eyes are on Wisconsin as he hopes to pick up the delegate marbles.  What else is more important, than, the Donald?

Some harpies think that the “T” in “Trump” stands for “Tyrant.”

But other women think it stands for something very different, and increasingly rare among males everywhere.

Call it “Testosterone.”

Yup.

Like cholesterol, there is a good kind of testosterone, and a bad kind.
