Defending Louisiana’s Economic Prosperity

We stand up to federal overreach and unconstitutional edicts that threaten the prosperity of our State and its industries. Here are our initiatives:

Supporting Our Industries

  • We defend Louisiana’s industries against undue regulations and federal interference. Through legal battles and advocacy, we’ve protected our state’s rights and prevented harmful policies from crippling our economy.
  • From the energy sector and agriculture to Louisiana horse racing and our seafood industry, we have defended Louisiana in court against burdensome restrictions to our prosperity, traditions, and continued growth.
  • We’ve also led coalitions with other states to protect Louisiana’s economy and energy sector, securing victories in court that have ranged from stopping Biden’s ban on lease sales to keeping the EPA in check.

Facing Economic Challenges

  • Our goal is to make Louisiana a place where businesses thrive, families prosper, and talent returns home. That means defending what is already here while protecting entrepreneurs, property owners, and even homeowners from blatant abuses of federal power.
  • We believe that Louisiana should have control over our natural resources, not councils, think tanks, or private corporations thousands of miles away, which is why we have fought for our recreational and commercial fisherman, our shrimpers, the horse racing industry, and even the control of our “navigable waters.”
  • When it comes to natural disasters, Louisiana is no stranger to the dangers, damages, or hassle, which is why our office supports several initiatives, from managing the Louisiana Cemetery Task Force in collaboration with GOHSEP to coordinating with the National Center for Disaster Fraud to protect our limited resources.

Did you know?

  • Louisiana has roughly 30,000 farm operations across eight million acres of farmland, with many focused on raising poultry, hogs, and cattle. On the whole, agriculture contributes nearly $10 billion annually to our State’s economy.
  • Roughly one in every 70 jobs in Louisiana is related to seafood, with 29% of all U.S. shrimp caught by Louisiana shrimpers.
  • Our State accounts for one-fifth of U.S. refining capacity and can process about 3.2 million barrels of crude oil per day.
  • The oil & gas industry plays a key role in Louisiana’s economy, generating substantial tax revenue that directly benefits public education as well as creating thousands of jobs both offshore and on-land. Lease sales also generate millions of dollars in funding for our coastal recovery and restoration programs.
