On Monday, the Central Louisiana Chamber of Commerce held its annual Legislative Outlook Luncheon with guest speaker, Stephen Waguespack, President of Louisiana Association of Business and Industry.

Much of the focus was on the deficit and how it affects businesses here in the state and Central Louisiana.

Waguespack also highlighted many of the issues facing business owners and what the upcoming legislative session could bring. His core concerns were the current business climate in Louisiana for both employers and employees, especially as talk of structural tax reform could be addressed in the upcoming April session.
