The Beacon Hill Institute, in partnership with the Pelican Institute for Public Policy, released a study on Governor Jindal's tax reform proposal. The study shows that the plan will create over 10,000 new jobs by 2017 and boost income for Louisianians.
Pelican Institute says, "It would boost investment in the state by $183 million, and increase real disposable income by $1.749 billion. That is, on average, an extra $910 for each of Louisiana’s households."
Kevin Kane, President of the Pelican Institute, announced the study’s release by saying: "This study shows that Governor Jindal’s tax reform plan gives Louisiana a unique opportunity to grow its economy and boost the income of its citizens."
