Gov. Bobby Jindal Signs Sen. Buddy Shaw Bill: The Stelly Tax Repeal

Posted by: Tom Pace - June 24, 2008
La. Gov. Bobby Jindal held a ceremonial signing of the Stelly Tax Repeal Bill authored by Bossier Sen. B.L. "Buddy" Shaw at the Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce, Tuesday, June 24th, 2008.  Tom Pace with the "Talk of the Town" captured the ceremony and following press conference on this podcast.

Jindal praised Sen. Shaw for sponsoring the Stelly Tax Repeal, which will save Louisiana taxpayers some $300 million annually. A large crowd gathered to watch this historic event in Shreveport...and while there was plenty of applause for Sen. Shaw, there were lots of cries for Jindal to "Veto the Legislative Pay Hikes" recently passed the House and Senate.

Gov. Jindal has acknowledged they are excessive (amounting to about a 200% increase in their salaries) beginning July 1, 2008.  However, the Governor is standing firm that he will not veto the bill.
