§246. Utilization of Louisiana goods and services; employment criteria

A. In purchasing or contracting for goods and services, the casino gaming operator and the corporation shall give preference and priority to Louisiana residents, laborers, vendors, and suppliers except where not reasonably possible to do so without added expense, substantial inconvenience, or sacrifice in operational efficiency. In considering applicants for employment, the casino gaming operator and the corporation shall give preference and priority to Louisiana residents, and no less than eighty percent of the persons employed by either the casino gaming operator or the corporation must have been residents of the state for at least one year immediately prior to employment. If any contract or other agreement to which either the casino gaming operator or the corporation is a party, contains a provision or clause establishing a different percentage or requiring more than fifty percent of the persons employed to be residents of any one parish, any such provision or clause shall be null and void and unenforceable as against public policy.

B. Additionally, in selecting the casino operator, the corporation shall give preferences to a casino operator who demonstrates the willingness and ability to purchase and contract for goods and services from or with Louisiana residents, laborers, vendors, and suppliers.
