Governor Brings Tax-Swap Plan to Shreveport Chamber
Governor Jindal has brought his case for repealing the state income tax to the Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce. Jindal says the state's current tax code is a major obstacle to helping more Louisianians find work and growing the economy.
He calls Louisiana's current tax code "unfair, complex, and unstable." And he's told Chamber members that replacing income taxes with sales taxes is a much better way to go. He says a state property tax is not part of the equation. A new Southern Opinion and Media Research poll shows that Governor Jindal's approval rating has dropped to 38-percent. So -- does The Governor think that will hurt his chances for getting his tax plan through the legislature? He tells us -- absolutely not!
