Can we take a breath and see where we are?

red bayou showStephen Waguespack, President of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry was our guest this week on The Red Bayou Show. We talked about what he expects to see from the rest of the legislative session, how to change the tone of the budgeting process, and we talked about the potential 2nd special session. Waguespack suggests (and I completely agree) that June is way too soon to hold a 2nd special session. He says everyone should take a step back, evaluate where we are, see how much revenue is coming in from the new taxes passed during the 1st special session, then determine if you even need another special session.

He was the morning show co-host, and helped build the show and the station into a top 10 performer. From there, Brian has moved on to work in Inbound Marketing, where he strives to marry the worlds of traditional advertising w/ the marketing methods of tomorrow.
