A senate committee in Louisiana approved legislation that would permit economic development officials to negotiate privately with businesses considering a move to the state. Proponents claim businesses would look elsewhere if negotiations were not kept secret. “We’re in a competition that’s growing more and more challenging every day,” Economic Development Secretary Stephen Moret told a Senate committee. The bill would extend the exemption until 2012. (4/3/08)
