Amid all the posturing and finger pointing in Louisiana at the moment, Rep. John Shadegg has made the one concrete proposal that will start to rectify things. I am, of course, referring to his legislation "to encourage expansion and construction of oil refineries." I hope it does not include any money. The oil companies don't need any more money. They are afloat in it.
What they need is for government, at various levels, to quit impeding progress. I hope Rep. Shadegg can get his peers, on both sides of the aisle, to understand that.
