Team Jindal: Come take our money Wednesday, Sep 9 2015
Most have learned either firsthand by driving on the Louisiana highways or from other sources that the state has a highway construction and maintenance backlog in the neighborhood of $12 Billion. That’s in addition to other state facilities in need of repair.
On Friday, members of the House of Representatives received a memo informing them of a program to assist NONSTATE ENTITIES in getting a slice of the state’s Capital Outlay pie.
While not specifically defined, it would be safe to assume, in addition to local public entities, included would be Non-Governmental Organizations (“NGOs”).
The Office of Facility Planning & Control, a part of the Division of Administration, headed by Commissioner of Administration Kristy Nichols, will be conducting “free capital outlay training for nonstate entities on Wednesday, September 30, 2015.”
“This training may be helpful for any nonstate entities in your district that may be interested in learning more about applying for capital outlay funding and the capital outlay request process.”
“The attached flyer includes more detailed information about this training session and the deadline for representative of nonstate entities to reserve their spot to attend. Feel free to forward this flyer to any nonstate entities in your district.”
To sum up; this is an effort by Team Jindal to help nonstate agencies get state revenues ahead of state agencies.
You can’t make this stuff up!
