New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu answers Gov. Bobby Jindal’s op-ed in the New York Times 

Says governor should focus on state budget crisis

  Last month, The New York Times gave Gov. Bobby Jindal space on the op-ed page to argue for the "religious freedom" bill put forward by state Rep. Mike Johnson, R-Bossier City. Last week, Mayor Mitch Landrieu answered Jindal with a letter to the paper's editor, denouncing the proposed legislation and insisting "our society can balance deeply rooted religious convictions with basic liberties for all" and taking a big swipe at Jindal's ambitions.

  "After the passage of religious restoration laws in Indiana and Arkansas, Mr. Jindal, who is running for president," Landrieu wrote, "vowed to make a new religious freedom law in Louisiana his top priority, even with a projected $1.6 billion state budget deficit."
