SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Louisiana State Treasurer John Schroder (R) is blaming politics for the failings of three Louisiana House bills.
“Well the Governor didn’t support it. That’s simple,” Schroder said at a Shreveport Rotary Club meeting Tuesday. “The Governor dictates what happens in the senate to a large case, especially when it comes to money.”
The bills passed in the house, but ultimately failed in the Louisiana Senate Finance committee.
“We have to cut the ties between the executive and the legislative branch, and cut the things that are stopping us from making good policy decisions, and not doing it based on politics.”
NBC 6 reached out to Governor Edwards’ office, but have not received a reply regarding Schroder’s accusations.
