Blanco asked to veto telco bill.

The Daily Advertiser - - Lafayette, LA:
"Blanco, after the meeting with mayors, closely questioned the proponents.

'I wasn't just overjoyed,' said Ellington, who accompanied BellSouth President William Oliver of New Orleans and CenturyTel representative Julia Thornton in the meeting in the governor's private office.

Oliver said Blanco was very detailed, getting down to words and phrases in the bill.

'She was as interested in that bill as any bill I've ever seen her interested in,' Oliver said."

My bet is that she'll side with local governments. There isn't much love anywhere in Louisiana for Bellsouth.
