Louisiana Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell will address the Baton Rouge Press Club at noon Monday.
Campbell will discuss Gov. Bobby Jindal’s decision to not seek $80 million in federal stimulus funds that would extend high speed internet into rural areas of the state. Campbell also will discuss his ongoing push for an oil-processing tax that would tax all oil and gas processed in Louisiana, regardless of where the oil and gas is captured.
Press Club meets on Mondays at De La Ronde Hall, 320 Third St.downtown. Lunch, which is served at 11:30 a.m., is $12 for members and $15 for non-members.
The public is invited, but only members of the Press Club and members of the news media are allowed to ask questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
