Congressman Clay Higgins was in Broussard today speaking to the Chamber of Commerce.

The stop was the first on Higgins' Small Business Tour, where he will visit local businesses in Louisiana's 3rd District to gain feedback on federal policy impacts and to highlight the success of South Louisiana's small businesses, industry, and skilled workforce.

Higgins explained that when he is in Louisiana and has a few free days, he likes to fill his schedule with meetings and side visits. He said the visits might be public, like today's, or might be private, like meeting with a veteran to discuss their experiences.

"I have great confidence that with the right adjustments, the right faith, and the right love and respect and optimism, that we can flip Louisiana's economy back in the right direction."

Congressman Higgins will continue his tour this week, visiting Abbeville, Crowley, and Jennings. Find a full schedule for the tour here.
