He was at a
gathering of business leaders at Louisiana College in Rapides Parish earlier
this week talking about a proposal that would eliminate the state income tax.
Kennedy warned the new proposal will have both winners and losers, though.
Governor Roemer and Governor Foster allowed the people to vote, after
explaining to them carefully, who would win, who would lose, what the changes
would be, what the anticipating consequences would be, people got to vote up or
down, both under Governor Roemer and under Governor Foster, so I'm asking
Governor Jindal to allow the people to vote on this one as well," Kennedy
proposed the best way to improve the tax legislation would be to open it to
public vote. The next state legislative session begins on April 8.
