Governor Bobby Jindal highlights the progress his administration has made in creating a New Louisiana at the Governor's Luncheon at the National Guard Readiness Center.

RESERVE – Governor Bobby Jindal’s 2010 parish tour – “Building a Better LA for Our Children” – stopped in St. John the Baptist Parish today where he addressed a luncheon hosted by the St. John the Baptist Parish President and the Sheriff in Reserve. The Governor’s tour will stop in every parish to highlight the significant progress his administration has made to create a New Louisiana that is the best place in the world to raise a family, get a great education and pursue a rewarding career.

The Governor cited the BP oil spill, the President’s deepwater drilling moratorium and the national economic downturn as challenges for the state, but he emphasized that these challenges will not get in the way of building a better Louisiana because the people of Louisiana will persevere and overcome these obstacles.
