Kiwanis of Lafayette thanks Greg Albrecht, Chief Economist of the Legislative Fiscal Office, for speaking to us today.
As Chief Economist, Mr. Albrecht is responsible for forecasting the State’s major tax revenues, estimating the fiscal impact of tax legislation, as well as providing general economic, tax, and fiscal analysis to the legislature.
Mr. Albrecht did an excellent job in providing the bad news about the current fiscal climate in Louisiana and in our Acadiana region. He also discussed how the current legislative efforts have fallen short of addressing the problems inherent in the state budget.
Thanks again to Greg Albrecht for visiting with us today!
