Citigroup Pays for Employee Abortion Travel: Landry Urges Treasurer to Join Him in Excluding Citi from State Business

BATON ROUGE, LA – Amid news of Citigroup paying for employee travel to obtain abortions, Attorney General Jeff Landry wrote the Louisiana Treasurer calling on him to exclude out-of-touch financial institutions intent on destroying Louisiana values from profiting off the State’s hard-working taxpayers.

“We are blessed to live in one of the most pro-life states in the country, and our legislators have consistently voted in overwhelming and bi-partisan efforts to protect expectant mothers and their unborn babies. As the chief legal officer, I have repeatedly defended these laws and done all I legally can to protect our State’s best interests and our people’s pro-life desires. Today, I call on you to join me in these efforts,” wrote Attorney General Landry.

“Just as I did when banks were attempting to restrict our fellow citizens from exercising their fundamental right to bear arms and when investment firms were threatening our State’s people and the trades they ply, I am again asking you to stand with me,” continued Attorney General Landry. “Use your role to exclude these out-of-touch financial institutions intent on destroying Louisiana values.”

“While we may not be able to control the policies of private companies such as Citigroup, we can certainly decide which companies are allowed to profit off the tax dollars of our State,” concluded Attorney general Landry.


This is another example of Attorney General Landry leading efforts to prevent banks from participating in negotiated bond transactions.
