Why Doesn’t Louisiana Attract More Newcomers?
Our friends at nola.com Louisiana's population was made up of a relatively small percentage of newcomers -- people who moved from outside the state or country -- last year. It ranked 42nd out of 50 when it came to new transplants in 2012, according to Governing magazine. Why is that? We have great people, food, festivals, outdoor activities, a booming film and television industry....and yet the people are not flocking to our great state.
Some of the comments seem to indicate that our reputation precedes us - I mean, let's face it, we have always had the image of a corrupt government - starting as far back as the esteemed Huey P Long! And it doesn't help that we have the highest car insurance rates in the entire nation - which is absolutely ridiculous!!!
