Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-05) “visited Southwest Louisiana Thursday to discuss his priorities if elected … governor.”

Abraham: “First thing we’ve got to do is we’ve got to get our tax structure back. To where businesses can do business and where people’s insurance rates, for instance, their car insurance rates, aren’t out the roof. That’s priority number one.”

“While taxes may be his number one priority, there are a few other items at the top of his to do list he wants to work on — including creating jobs and keeping people in the state to do them, as well as protecting the oil and gas industry.”

Abraham: “The legacy lawsuits are decimating the oil and gas industry. Not only does that affect their bottom line, it affects the Louisiana tax base. But more importantly, it attacks those good good jobs that are leaving the state, going to Texas, going to Mobile, I want those jobs back.” (KPLC)
