Elliott Stonecipher on Louisiana's stagnating population growth
Elliott Stonecipher, veteran pollster and demographer, analyzes why, since the 1970s, Louisiana has lagged behind other states, including those in the South, in population growth. Stonecipher takes calls from listeners illustrating loved ones who have left Louisiana for opportunity and other reasons.
Stonecipher also examines how the tax proposal by Gov. John Bel Edwards will resonate with lawmakers and the electorate and explains why he sees a correlation between taxation and population stagnation.
