Representative Pope is a strong supporter of Business interest in Livingston Parish


Economic Development is important to the citizens of Livingston Parish. In 2012 we were able to pass legislation that provided a funding method for Juban Crossing DevelopĀ¬ment Plan at no cost to taxpayers.

This legislation passed the House and Senate but Governor Jindal vetoed this legislation. The funding method was the same method used in prior years to develop other projects in the state. Governor Jindal did not veto those projects. Just Livingston Parish.

In 2013, we again passed legislation unanimously in the House and Senate that provided the same funding method for Juban Crossing and for the second year in a row, Governor Jindal vetoed this legislation.

I will not give up on this important legislation to create additional businesses and jobs in Livingston Parish and will push for this legislation next session.

It is important that we make the changes necessary to attract industry to Livingston Parish and just as important that we address issues important to existing businesses to keep the jobs that we have and to add new jobs for the citizens of Livingston Parish.
