Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) “is trying to close a $1.6 billion budget hole without touching as much as $415,000 per episode in tax breaks that may be due to Duck Dynasty,” the Baton Rouge Advocate reports.
“The A&E television reality show takes part in the nation’s most generous entertainment-tax credit program. Jindal is proposing no changes, arguing that reducing such breaks is tantamount to raising taxes.”
“Louisiana’s tattered finances are a consequence of years of short-term patches to a structural gap between expenses and revenue and the recent sag in oil prices in the energy-producing state.”Save to Favorites
