Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) was dealt another political blow on Monday after the Louisiana House of Representatives deferred on bills that would repeal the state's income tax, a major component of the governor's agenda, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported.
Jindal pulled his tax plan, which would have eliminated the state's income and corporate taxes, last week after receiving withering criticism over the proposal. As the Times-Picayune reported, after Jindal dropped his own plan he tasked the legislature with coming up with alternative measures. But the state's House of Representatives answered the call with: not now.
