Business owner: Taxes hurt industry
We need to support our energy industry if we are going to pull our state’s economy out of the doldrums of the recession, the oil spill and the moratorium on drilling.
Yet, we still hear calls from the administration for increased taxes on this key industry.
As the owner of Oilfield CNC Machining in Broussard, I am just finally seeing things approach the level of stability for smaller energy businesses. But higher energy taxes could quickly change this slow improvement, leaving us unable to create jobs.
