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.
“An attorney for over 25 years, a small business owner, a community volunteer, a mother, and a grandmother, Natalie is a reflection of her community and has served St. Martin, Iberia, and St. Mary parishes for nearly three decades with conviction, character, and integrity,” said Mike Moncla, Executive Director of the Louisiana Oil and Gas Political Action Committee. “She is a servant leader everywhere she goes, and as a Judge of the 16th JDC in Division F we look forward to her continued fair and impartial reading of the law.”
“This legislation would have stimulated some critically needed economic activity in our state, and while it did not pass we remain hopeful and optimistic,” Mike Moncla, Interim President of the Louisiana Oil & Gas Association said. “We believe Gov. Edwards gave strong consideration to the merits of the issue, and it is our job over the next few months to illustrate to the governor, the Department of Natural Resources, and key legislators why this bill is so important. We look forward to that opportunity.”
