Jindal opposes greenhouse plan

Gov. Bobby Jindal added his opposition Monday to proposed rules aimed at lowering greenhouse gases.

“Louisiana is the second largest refining state in the U.S.,” Jindal wrote in a letter to Lisa Jackson, administrator for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “Our state is also a major producer of oil and gas utilized domestically by our country. Implementation of the proposed rules will have a dramatic chilling effect on the refining and production capability of our state.”
