Jindal touches base
Following a statement of support by Lincoln Parish Sheriff Mike Stone, Jindal gave a rundown of recent legislation and his stance pertaining to issues ranging from education to infrastructure.
He noted how a state surplus was recently allocated for the roads.
“I don’t have to tell you we have a $14 billion backlog on road (projects),” he said. “We didn’t have to raise gasoline taxes to help the roads.”
Jindal highlighted two main areas in need of focus for the state’s educational system. The first, he said, has to do with retaining good teachers.
