At the Louisiana Oil & Gas Association, I see that real impact every day just talking to my members. One pipe fabrication business recently told me “no new projects, no need for piping products.” Others have cited being immediately forced to do layoffs, and others simply having no demand for their services. We are watching the guillotine being readied for our already greatly battered economy.I’m asking the Governor to stand up for our state, just as the governor in our Lone Star neighbor just did. Find every way to support our vital industry and stop these executive actions from harming our great state of Louisiana.
These moratoriums intended to regulate American oil and gas companies out of business backfire by burdening main street and households everywhere. "Now more than ever people cannot afford heightened energy costs,” Mike Moncla, LOGA Interim President said. "A better approach would be to support the recovery with sustainable policies that benefit struggling Americans with affordable, reliable, American energy."
The Louisiana Oil & Gas Association has read your legislative report and recommendation to change the tax rate for natural gas. While we appreciate the work you’ve undertaken to provide data from the LSU Center for Energy Studies, we do not agree with the conclusions the report draws regarding changing the tax rate.
Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, Louisiana moved up a spot from last year, ranking as the fourth-worst Judicial Hellhole in the U.S. The report highlights the worst local courts and states for abuses of the civil justice system, with the top 10 Judicial Hellholes filled with widespread civil lawsuits, legislative loopholes that create more ways for lawyers to sue, and judges who allow junk science into evidence in trials. Judicial Hellholes have civil justice climates that allow abuse and starkly contrast the rest of the nation. Judicial Hellholes swing open the door for trial lawyers to sue for more money over more issues.
The discussion will provide insight from the congressional level on the recent Executive Orders regarding the drilling and leasing ban. LOGA's President, Mike Moncla, will moderate the discussion. Members are invited to participate and ask their questions to Congressman Clay Higgins.
