Lieutenant governor candidate Billy Nungesser said Tuesday he favors elimination of Louisiana’s income tax.
“I think it’s doable in redoing our tax structure,” Nungesser told the Ronald Reagan Newsmaker Luncheon crowd.
Gov. Bobby Jindal floated the idea of scrapping the income tax and upping sales taxes in 2013 but abandoned the idea amid fierce opposition.
Former Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser has $2.2 million on hand for the 2015 Louisiana lieutenant governor's race, according to his recent campaign finance reports.
Much of Nungesser's campaign cash comes from his own personal money. The candidate lent his campaign $900,000 in 2014, after giving it $1 million in 2013. The campaign has since paid back $500,000 worth of his 2013 loan, but $1.4 million of the $2.2 million he has on hand still can be attributed to Nungesser personally.
