BATON ROUGE – Today, Governor John Bel Edwards released a statement asking Louisiana’s congressional delegation and neighboring Gulf Producing States to oppose President Trumps’ budget proposal, which calls for the elimination of GOMESA state payments.  “I am asking the Louisiana congressional delegation and neighboring Gulf Producing States to oppose this plan and adopt a responsible budget that doesn’t unfairly turn a blind eye to our region,” stated Edwards.
