BATON ROUGE (AP) — Gov. Bobby Jindal's office has changed its policy and started notifying Louisiana's second-highest ranking official when the governor heads out of state.
Under the Louisiana Constitution, Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne is technically the governor when Jindal leaves Louisiana. But until recently, Dardenne never knew when Jindal was gone.
The Advocate report that Jindal's office has started telling Dardenne's office about the trips, after the Baton Rouge newspaper published a report saying Dardenne wasn't getting the traditional notice that previous governors had offered when they traveled away from Louisiana.
Dardenne says he has since received emails from the office of Jindal's executive counsel Liz Murrill advising him when the governor traveled to the Nebraska Republican Convention and to Ohio for a Mitt Romney campaign event.
