The Picayune’s reporter explains these proposals by saying that “Jindal, who is considering a run for president, doesn’t want to approve any budget-solving strategy that could be considered a tax hike by the national anti-tax advocacy groups. The governor’s restrictions require that a new tax break be introduced for every tax break that might be rolled back or shuttered in the state.”
