U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy made a surprise appearance on the floor of the Louisiana House Tuesday afternoon and encouraged state lawmakers to take advantage of green energy opportunities.
Cassidy gave brief remarks to the House lawmakers at the request of House Speaker Clay Schexnayder.
The Republican senator from Baton Rouge said Louisiana would soon receive billions in federal money. He encouraged state legislators to capitalize on the Biden administration’s “focus on green energy,” which Cassidy said can provide many good opportunities for the state.
His remarks were applauded.
U.S. Rep. Julia Letlow and U.S. Sen. John Kennedy also briefly greeted lawmakers at the Baton Rouge capitol.
