They told Bollinger no

Not a bad start.
The Orleans Parish School Board Thursday (Oct. 11) denied a company's tax breaks request in the district's first-ever vote on the topic ever since it gained the power to review industrial tax exemption applications.

Six members of the board voted to deny Bollinger Algiers' application for a five-year property tax exemption under Louisiana's Industrial Tax Exemption Program . District 3 member Sarah Usdin recused herself from the vote. The district rejected the request because the application failed to meet two of four recently established rules for tax breaks approved by the OPSB.
But it's just the one time. The trick is make it a habit.
