Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy Speaks to CenLa Businesses

Posted: Updated:
PINEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) The Red River Bank held its Community Reinvestment Economic Development Summit today.

State Treasurer John Kennedy spoke with local business leaders about the state's need to prioritize spending and discuss state contracts.

Treasurer Kennedy says lawmakers are preventing small business growth throughout the state.

"Everybody in government today in Baton Rouge talks about how we want to create jobs but every time you turn around they are creating a new rule a new regulation and a new tax. There is more government sticking its nose in to the private sector. And maybe the answer is just to get out of the way," said Treasurer John Neely Kennedy.

More than 75 business leaders from across CenLa attended today's economic development summit.
