Legislative Session Not Kind To Jindal’s Agenda
It's the final day of the legislative session and a political analyst says this session will be remembered for the legislature showing its independence from the governor. Clancy Dubos says legislators didn't go along with much of Gov. Bobby Jindal's agenda, which included the SUNO/UNO merger, selling of prisons and raising state employee retirement costs. Dubos calls the cigarette tax measure added to the TOPS bill as an amendment, a symbolic gesture towards Jindal. He says it's another way the legislature has shown its independence from Jindal.
