LAFAYETTE - Governor John Bel Edwards met Tuesday with the American Sugar Cane League in Lafayette, to discuss the role agriculture and sugar cane will have in his economic development plan for Louisiana.
"It's tremendous. Whether it's tourism, whether it's business and industry, whether it's all of the plants that are being expanded, or built new here in southwest Louisiana, to take advantage of the natural gas, and other things we have going on around the state. All of it is critically important," said Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards.
