re: JBE's Special Session Call is out - BigJim
[quote]Did you hear about how Jeff Landry went over JBE's head about the common core lawsuit? That is unheard of in Louisiana with the AG bucking the Governor. JBE just might be the weakest governor ever which makes me pretty happy.[/quote] I don't disagree, but this mostly seems symbolic. ...

re: Jay Dardenne to keep his lucrative state salary, But he’s cutting everyone else - BigJim
[quote]240K is not reasonable IMO. The Governor makes less than that to a tune of 130K a year and that's only because his salary is limited by the state constitution[/quote] For me it is more the hypocrisy than the amount. $240k might be a bargain if he really comes up with some workable cuts ...
