BATON ROUGE – Governor Bobby Jindal recently launched a statewide tour that will take him to all 64 parishes, according to a press release.

The tour will include a variety of stops including events to highlight new economic development announcements, education achievements, transportation projects, coastal restoration projects, and legislation passed in the recent legislative session.

"We've made incredible progress over the last five and a half years by making Louisiana a better place to do business, improving our education system, overhauling our ethics code, revamping the workforce development, and cutting taxes, but we've got more work to do and I want to hear from Louisianans firsthand about issues that matter most to them," Jindal said. "The people of Louisiana shouldn't have to come to Baton Rouge to see their Governor. Since I entered office, I've been fortunate to visit every parish multiple times and I look forward once again to visiting communities across the state to hear from Louisianans firsthand."

Expenses or funding for the tour was not listed in the release.
