Louisiana Legislature Passes Resolutions To Encourage NFLPA And NFL To Get A Deal Done

Just how important is pro football in Louisiana? Important enough to get the House and Senate to step in and encourage both sides to get a deal done.

The House resolution states:

"To urge and request team owners of the National Football League and the representatives of the National Football League Players Association to work diligently and quickly to resolve their labor differences." 

And the Senate resolution includes:

"...a work stoppage in the National Football League would have a detrimental impact on countless Louisiana businesses, including restaurants, bars, transportation companies, hotels, and other travel related businesses and therefore would reduce tax revenue and jobs for our state."

Both resolutions detail how successful the NFL has been in Louisiana and how important it is to the local economy.
