The Louisiana State Bond Commission on Thursday voted to block two giant banks — Citigroup and Bank of America — from taking part in a $600 million highway project plan, The Washington Times reported. The decision was made in light of the banks' anti-gun policies that were adopted after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.

The Commission voted 7-6 to keep the banks from participating in the project. The move is said the state's way of saying they won't do business with anti-gunners.
Why can’t we get something like this done in Texas? The more states that do this, the sooner the banks will back the heck off.

Hmmmmmm...... and I actually did a forum search before posting. I guess my query-fu is weak. :mrgreen:
