Bobby Jindal’s Staff Formalizing Out-of-State Travel Policy?



Text  



Hmmm. This is probably nothing significant, but…

Gov. Bobby Jindal’s office has changed its policy and started notifying Louisiana’s second-highest ranking official when the governor heads out of state.

Under the Louisiana Constitution, Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne is technically the governor when Jindal leaves Louisiana. But until recently, Dardenne never knew when Jindal was gone.

… So, does Governor Jindal or his staff have reason to believe he’ll be leaving the state more regularly in the not-too-distant future?

UPDATE: Governor Jindal has a lengthy post in the Corner today.
