  • Campbell, Foster Speaker


A speech by Foster Campbell before the Baton Rouge Press Club on December 12, 2011. Campbell is a Commissioner with the Louisiana Public Service Commission. He discusses: a recently passed rule that allows victims of domestic violence to move without paying a deposit; a recently passed rule that does not allow energy companies to cut off electricity or gas during extreme temperatures; Governor Bobby Jindal’s decision to not pursue an $80 million grant to extend high-speed internet service to rural parishes; and the reasons why he believes Louisiana needs a tax on the oil and gas processed in the state.
