Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, members of the legislature, my fellow Louisianans:
Today, I’m going to be brief. The time for politics and partisanship is over. The time for solutions is now. No more excuses. The citizens of this state have waited long enough. They deserve results – now.
I’m not going to bog you down with the numbers and figures that have been in front of us for more than two years. We don’t need to rehash the tale of how we got here – we all know that by now.
