BATON ROUGE, LA (By: Tom Pace, Executive Editor, Talk of the Town)  BREAKING STATE POLITICS: 11am 6-27-08  Gov. Bobby Jindal has until July 8th to veto the Legislature's 200% pay raise, and yet, he still waits.  The people have spoken.  They're mad. 

Recall petitions are being filed.  Jindal promised to not allow a pay raise, and now he's trying to straddle the fence.  Yesterday, House Speaker Jim Tucker cracked the door open to allow Jindal to veto the bill, saying "We would understand." 

Bossier State Rep. Jane Smith spoke "One-on-One" with Tom Pace about Jindal's dilemma. Rep. Smith says the answer is very simple, "Governor, veto the bill."  (Click here to listen to Pace's interview with Jane Smith.)
