Politics & Pinot: WRKF Talks Tax Reform Over Wine
During his speech kicking off the 2013 legislative session, Gov. Bobby Jindal ditched his idea for eliminating the state income tax by replacing it with a higher and more expansive sales tax and passed the ball to legislature. A week later, the House Ways & Means Committee deferred all the bills dealing with an income tax repeal indefinitely.
WRKF will host a lively community conversation Wednesday, April 17, at the Old Governor’s Mansion, exploring what happens now.
WRKF host, political analyst, and legislative encyclopedia, Jim Engster will facilitate discussion with a diverse set of Louisiana policy-watchers:
- House Ways & Means Chairman Joel Robideaux
- Louisiana Budget Project Director Jan Moller
- Public Affairs Research Council President Robert Travis Scott
Wine and light refreshments will be served-and tours of the Mansion will be available beginning at 6 p.m. The conversation starts at 7 p.m.
The event is free; space is limited. Contact Latricia Huston to reserve your seat, email@example.com, 225-926-3050.
WRKF thanks The Foundation for Historical Louisiana and Heirloom Cuisine for help in making this event possible.
