Louisiana Chemical Association Comments on Governor Jeff Landry’s Signing of an Executive Order

BATON ROUGE – February 22, 2024 - Today, Greg Bowser, President and CEO of the Louisiana Chemical Association (LCA), made the following statement after Governor Jeff Landry signed an executive order, “We are pleased with the positive step forward for Louisiana that Governor Jeff Landry has taken in signing an executive order on the Ten-Year Industrial Tax Exemption Program. While this order doesn’t fully restore ITEP to where it was before 2016, it does bring a level of certainty to the program for both Businesses and Government. We believe this is a step in the right direction and should make Louisiana more competitive for a number of capital-intensive projects. We look forward to working with Governor Landry and his administration to make sure that Louisiana secures those projects.”
