Business and Industry Leaders Briefed by Governor Jindal
Governor Bobby Jindal spoke to approximately 250 business leaders at the New Orleans Airport Hilton January 21, briefing them on Louisiana’s economic and educational programs. Jindal said Louisiana is continuing to make inroads in ethics reform, reducing drop out rates in our high schools, and investing in and modernizing the state’s infrastructure through coastal restoration and hurricane preparedness efforts. Quoting 38,000 new jobs as a result of economic wins, Jindal said Louisiana has stemmed the tide of losing its citizens to other states for job opportunities. “We are now bringing our children home,” he said.
