“Louisiana residents understand you do not have to choose between protecting the environment and harnessing our vast domestic energy options. We know both can be done because we see it happen each day in Louisiana. That’s why we are pleased that CEA’s Campaign for America’s Energy will play a key role in reminding policy makers of the opportunities presented by Louisiana’s energy resources to meet our economic needs and protect our environment.”

– Stephen Waguespack, President and CEO of Louisiana Association of Business and Industry

Louisianans spend over $6,500 annually on energy.  For a low-income Louisianan living at the poverty line, that translates to over 54 percent of their individual income.
