Louisiana State Treasurer John Kennedy thinks taxpayers should question the Governor's new plan to eliminate personal and corporate income tax.

The state's treasurer is elected separately from the governor in Louisiana. Kennedy is a frequent critic of Gov. Jindal's policies, using his "Opinion Columns" as a venue to voice his thoughts.

Governor Bobby Jindal is calling for legislators to eliminate the state income tax in the upcoming session.

The details of Jindal’s tax reform plan have not been released, but according to a written statement Jindal says his goal is to replace both personal income tax and corporate income tax with revenue from an increased sales tax. Jindal says the reforms would be enacted in such a way as to not decrease or increase the state’s revenue.
