Jindal administration hammered by their own: “Be leaders, and not just philosophers”

April 28, 2009

As Gov. Bobby Jindal continues to march in lockstep with the national Republican Party, some members of the Louisiana GOP continue to question Jindal’s priorities and leadership. Republican state Rep. Hollis Downs isn’t happy with the Jindal administration’s lack of communication and vision. From the Times-Picayune:

The Republican author of a bill to let the state’s fuel tax rise with the inflation rate pulled his measure from consideration at a committee hearing this morning after criticizing Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration for its lack of support.

House Bill 456 by Rep. Hollis Downs, R-Ruston, sought to make the first major change in two decades in the state’s 20-cent per gallon tax on gasoline, diesel and other fuels. …

Downs said he wished the governor’s office, even if it opposed the bill, would have been willing to offer long-term plans for meeting the state’s transportation project expenses. He called on Jindal’s team “to be leaders, and not just philosophers.”
