Governor Bobby Jindal opens a fiscal legislative session by railing against tax increases. The major item of the session is the governor's proposed 24.9 billion dollar spending plan, but a bill to increase tobacco taxes will also be debated. Jindal says higher taxes means bigger government, which is not what Louisiana needs. He says tax increases will limit job growth and opportunities for Louisiana residents. (The governor only talked briefly about his proposed budget for the next fiscal year. He also gave no direction to lawmakers on several other items that are up for discussion.)
