Dem Gov John Bel Edwards’ Anti-Business Policies Continue To Hurt Louisiana

Per The RGA:

Democrat Governor John Bel Edwards continues to receive criticism for his anti-business policies in Louisiana. Yesterday, one of the state’s leading business organizations called for reforms to Louisiana’s Industrial Tax Exemption Program (ITEP), asserting that changes made under Edwards’ watch have “broken it” and hurt businesses.

This comes just days after the publisher of the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report blasted Edwards’ ITEP changes, claiming they have forced much-needed jobs and capital out of the state and across the border to Texas. But as the Associated Press reports Edwards shows little interest in cleaning up his mess, stating that “Louisiana remains competitive in business development” despite the fact that CNBC ranks the state 44th in the nation for business climate.

John Bel Edwards’ has made it clear that he has no intention of changing course even as his anti-growth agenda continues to hurt businesses and working families. Louisiana needs a new direction.
