Several legislators and myself have called on the governor to (either by executive order or in a 1 day special session) eliminate the state gas tax for 30 days .This will help the working man get to work, to keep the economy going and to allow the people to have more money to be able to help flood victims. In these tough times the state should be the one to tighten the budget not the working man.
The governor has called on the people of this state to help the people of La. We are calling on the governor to return to the people of our state some money so they CAN give. This would be temporary (so our refineries can get back on line)and would save about 20 cents a gallon.
More on this later, just want you to be the first to know.
