Section 10.(A) The Louisiana Investment Fund for Enhancement is established as a special fund in the state treasury. All revenues received by the state from the production of oil and gas within the state shall be deposited in the state treasury and credited to the Bond Security and Redemption Fund in accordance with the provisions of Article VII, Section 9, and shall be remitted to the political subdivisions of the state pursuant to Article VII, Section 4. In each fiscal year out of the funds remaining in the Bond Security and Redemption Fund, after a sufficient amount has been allocated for the payment of obligations secured by the full faith and credit of the state which become due and payable within the fiscal year, the treasurer shall credit an amount equal to the windfall revenues from oil and gas price deregulation to the Louisiana Investment Fund for Enhancement.
(B) As used in this Section, “windfall revenues from oil and gas price deregulation” means those revenues received by the state in a fiscal year which are in excess of the base for that particular fiscal year, as calculated in accordance with this Paragraph. The base for fiscal year 1981-1982 shall be the estimated level of collections for oil, gas, and other severance taxes and from oil and gas production royalties in fiscal year 1980-1981, which for the purposes hereof shall be one billion eighty-five million dollars, calculated as follows:
THESE ARE PAYMENTS MADE TO THE STATE (base fiscal year 1981-82, broken down)
(1) Seven hundred sixty million dollars from oil, gas, and other severance taxes; and
(2) Three hundred twenty-five million dollars from oil and gas royalty payments, excluding bonuses and rentals.
In each subsequent fiscal year, the state treasurer shall calculate the windfall revenues from oil and gas price deregulation for that fiscal year by determining a new base as follows: The base for the previous fiscal year shall be multiplied by the most recent annual change in the consumer price index and then the product shall be added to the base for the previous fiscal year.
(C) The state treasurer shall invest the monies in the Louisiana Investment Fund for Enhancement in the manner provided by law. Interest from the investment shall be credited to the general fund.
(D) Monies credited to the Louisiana Investment Fund for Enhancement may be expended only pursuant to an appropriation enacted by the vote of two-thirds of the elected members of each house of the legislature.
(E) The legislature shall have the authority to enact any legislation with regard to the Louisiana Investment Fund for Enhancement not inconsistent with the provisions of this Section.
Added by Acts 1983, No. 730, 1, approved Oct. 22, 1983, eff. Nov. 23, 1983.

NOTICE IN THE ATTACHMENT:
1. LA RS 30:136.1 – Does not use the word ‘valid’ when referencing the mineral leases, as the previous subsection does (LA RS 30:136).
2. LA RS 30:136.1 – Does not use the word ‘existing’ when referencing the mineral leases, as the previous subsection does (LA RS 30:136). The only words used to reference time in this subsection is ‘heretofore’ (fancy word for previously) and ‘to be granted’.
3. LA RS 30:136.1 – Payment Conditions/This subsection uses the following words when referencing proceeds of royalty payments, ‘remaining after complying with dedication of such revenues heretofore (previously) made’. This statement leads the reader to believe that the word ‘heretofore’ refers to the allocation of funds as explained in the previous subsection (LA RS 30:136). The wording does NOT specifically reference the content of the previous subsection. In addition, the wording that immediately follows is ‘and deductions of any appropriation of such revenues made by law for the payment of expenses…’.
Payment deductions made by law, as opposed to payment allocations NOT made by law? The law currently offers NO revelation towards this assertion, but leaves me, the reader, with a real sense of the intentional ambiguity lurking behind the structure of Louisiana State Laws contained in its Revised Statutes.
Authorization for Chair of the State Mineral Board to
Sign Certain Documents on Governor’s Behalf
WHEREAS, the State Mineral Board (hereafter “Board”), created by Act No. 93 of the 1936 Regular Session and continued through R.S. 30:121, et seq., is authorized through R.S. 30:124 to lease for development and production of minerals, oil, and gas the lands belonging to the state of Louisiana and the lands to which title is held in the public, including road beds, water bottoms, and lands adjudicated to the state at tax sale;
WHEREAS, pursuant to R.S. 30:129, the Board has full supervision of all mineral leases granted by the state of Louisiana, and the general authority to take any action for the protection of the interests of the state, institute actions to annul a lease upon any legal ground, and enter into agreements and amend leases;
WHEREAS, R.S. 30:128 expressly prohibits and provides penalties for the transfer or assignment of any lease of minerals or mineral rights owned by the state of Louisiana without the Board’s approval;
WHEREAS, prior to the creation of the Board, certain state leases and other agreements pertaining to the development and production of mineral, oil, and gas were executed on behalf of the state of Louisiana by the Governor and, therefore, those leases and agreements contain language which require the signature of the Governor prior to any transfer of interests therein; and
WHEREAS, the chair of the Board has been authorized to sign such leases and agreements on behalf of the governor pursuant to Executive Orders issued by former governors;
NOW THEREFORE I, BOBBY JINDAL, Governor of the state of Louisiana, by virtue of the authority vested by the Constitution and laws of the state of Louisiana, do hereby order and direct as follows:
SECTION 1: As to those documents presented to the Board, pursuant to R.S. 30:128, for approval of the right to transfer or assign a lease of minerals or mineral rights owned by the state of Louisiana which require the signature of the Governor prior to any transfer of interests therein, and which the Board has approved the transfer or assignment, the chair of the Board is authorized and directed to sign the document on behalf of the Governor.
SECTION 2: This Order is effective upon signature and shall continue in effect until amended, modified, terminated, or rescinded by the governor, or terminated by operation of law.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have set my hand officially and caused to be affixed the Great Seal of Louisiana, at the Capitol, in the city of Baton Rouge, on this 13th day of February, 2008.
Secretary of State
Seems that this tragedy in the Gulf has excited many justifiable areas of life. Notice that the financial points are always stressed. Did we hear a reduction of benefits to the Louisiana public? Did we hear about taxes which always pays the public til for those services? All realistic and possibly justifiable. But remember when the generals win wars Roman style (not US policy now days) Ceasar alway takes credit. So look at the monies Louisiana Treasury and Mineral Board is still paying to the Win or Lose gang by dissolving the Corporations, Win or Lose, Ind Oil & Gas, shifting the cash flow to individuals thru municipal bonds, etc. If Louisiana retained that money, its financial prosperity from Oil & Gas would double. HEY, did I remember the HAYNESVILLE GAS FIELD? WHAT ABOUT THAT WEALTH? DOES IT COUNT FOR LOUISIANA PROSPERITY? Sometimes what is not said is worth more than what is said. The psychology of such is much like looking at little Johnny and his bike wreck, he has skin breaks and bloody nose and some jerk says look how dirty his clothes are. Eyes open and ear to the ground, politicos are master farmers, very high in fertilize technology…….thanks, Art
Thanks to the information you provided me on Julius Long’s son’s succession paperwork well over a year ago – it finally CLICKED!! I have these papers packed away in a box somewhere. We just moved & I can’t find half of what we own. So, I can’t even remember Julius’ son’s name, but I know you know his name well!
Ok, prepare yourself, the following information may contain answers to some of the questions posed on walkermedia.org. It really stuck w/me that Julius’ son’s plentiful amount of money was mostly comprised of interest on parish/state bond revenues – a man w/all this $ & never really had a lucrative job – so pardon my “French”, but what the hell?
I followed the $ & this is how the LAW describes the flow.
There is a LEGISLATIVE or legally devised SPLIT on royalty payments. There is NO corporation or company entity in this pursuit, only individuals or people; which is potentially evidenced by Julius’ son’s financial paperwork. The oil & gas royalties, which still flow today, were initiated from the Win or Lose lease/contracts and are paid DIRECTLY to individuals. Now, I can accept the possibility of companies getting in on the profit, and through humble admission I cannot possibly fathom the intricacies of the elements corruption that abound in our dear Sportsmans’ Paradise; yet!
A. WIN OR LOSE – Initial Corporate Charter states DURATION IS 99 YEARS unless sooner provided by law. As you already know, they rename themselves as INDEPENDENT OIL & GAS in the early 40’s. In 1951-52 INDEPENDENT OIL & GAS is affected by two operations of law. First, they DISSOLVE the corporation or cease to exist. Second, they LIQUIDATE or distribute their assets to 14 family members & friends of Huey P. Long. I’m certain you can name them right off the top of your head. This is why there is NO CORPORATION IN EXISTENCE. However, the burning question remains – how would the State of LA pay these individuals, because the state’s expenditures are PUBLIC RECORD?
B. THE LEASE – #340 for example, STATE is LESSOR, WT BURTON is LESSEE. Upon assignments of interest to TEXACO and WIN OR LOSE by WT BURTON, the governor JAMES A. NOE (also main shareholder of WIN OR LOSE), approves the transfers; as long as the original terms of the lease remain the same. Essentially, BURTON decided to “share” his interest with a real oil company, THE TEXAS COMPANY, and his friends of the WIN OR LOSE CORPORATION; but there was never a cut into royalty payments belonging to the State of Louisiana. This is what makes the contract legal on SL #340, immoral, but legal….the payment terms remain the same. The game is translucent, and the set up is becoming more obvious. It is FRAUD at its finest!
C. THE PAYMENT – Louisiana had 3 different governors in 1936. 1. OK ALLEN, died shortly before his term ended. 2. JAMES A. NOE, stepped in as the “Long machine’s” little helper. 3. RICHARD LECHE, had won the gubernatorial seat in the following election. It appears that Governor RICHARD LECHE tried to stop the proliferation of this game by setting up the MINERAL BOARD, which was set up through a legislative ACT passed in July of 1936. And we all know how RICHARD LECHE’s political career turned out as a result of challenging the “machine”. LECHE may have been no hero, but he gave more of a sh$% about our state’s natural resource revenue than anyone else in power at the time. LECHE challenged the corrupt authority and in 1939 he was taken down for it, along with a whirl-wind of his closest friends!
Below are the laws that ambiguously define 2 DIFFERENT METHODS of receipt of payments to the STATE from OIL & GAS ROYALTIES on 2 DIFFERENT TYPES OF LEASES:
1. LA R.S. 30:136 FUNDS, DISPOSITION AND APPROPRIATION OF; PENALTIES
A. (1) (a) All bonuses, rentals royalties, shut-in payments, or other sums payable to the state as the lessor under the terms of valid existing mineral leases entered into under this Subpart of previously granted by the state and under the supervision of the board or from leases here after granted shall be paid to the office of mineral resources, by check or electronic wire transfers only, etc…
2. LA R.S. 30:136.1 PROCEEDS FROM MINERAL ROYALTIES, LEASES AND BONUSES; PAYMENT INTO THE BOND SECURITY AND REDEMPTION FUND; PAYMENT INTO THE LOUISIANA INVESTMENT FUND FOR ENHANCEMENT (L.I.F.E.)
A. The proceeds of all royalties from all mineral leases to be granted, as well as all mineral leases heretofore granted, by the state of Louisiana on state-owned land, lake and river beds, and other water bottoms belonging to the state remaining after complying with dedication of such revenues heretofore made and after deductions of any appropriations of such revenues made by law for the payment of the expenses of the state mineral board, shall be paid into the state treasury for credit to the Bond Security and Redemption Fund.
At first glance it appears these 2 particular laws pose a contradiction of the state entity to which royalty payments are to be made and describe 2 different lease originations. Are royalties paid to the OFFICE OF MINERAL RESOURCES or are they paid to the STATE TREASURY, for that nifty BOND SECURITY and REDEMPTION FUND, which by operation of law monies navigate their way into the LOUISIANA INVESTMENT FUND for ENHANCEMENT, aka L.I.F.E.?
The answer is BOTH! The only difference appears to be the involvement of the MINERAL BOARD. The first law RS 30:136 has that little extra phrase “and under the supervision of the board”, which refers to the MINERAL BOARD. The second law, RS 30:136.1 does not mention the MINERAL BOARD, but it’s neat how all of this revenue, if you read down through the contents of this law, moves this revenue into parish bonds, city bonds, etc. From the information that has been made available to me over the last couple of years, it is very conceivable that Julius’ son collected his wealth through the process that begins with royalty payments into the STATE TREASURY.
By now most of the recipients, I suspect, are unaware of the origins of their compounding wealth. It’s only wise investing which produced these lucrative investment portfolios; interest earned from parish and electric/utility bonds accounts that were inherited from mom & pop, right? They were born with silver spoons in their mouths, believing that it’s their rightful heritage, and certainly not the public’s inalienable rights as citizens & tax payers of Louisiana.
Fondest regards & your friend,
