Lawmaker Would Support Cutting 3,000 Jobs At DOTD
Things got heated when Shreveport representative Alan Seabaugh addressed the House about the failed state gas tax hike. Seabaugh said he was a "very loud hell no" on giving millions to DOTD for continued construction projects. He went on to say that 3,000 of the 4,700 DOTD workers should be fired. Seabaugh says the remaining 1,700 employees could do a better job. He said he was elected to come to Baton Rouge to vote "no" and keep new taxes away. He was pretty passionate that he is doing what his constituents want him to do.
What do you think of the tongue lashing he gave fellow Republicans who lobbied him to approve the gas tax statewide?
