 BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Lt. Gov.-elect Jay Dardenne is traveling to New York next week with a group of Louisiana businessmen to promote tourism and economic development.

The trip from Nov. 16-18 is in connection with the nonprofit Committee of 100 for Economic Development Inc. Dardenne's office says a group of 70 business leaders will be included.

The group will meet with investment banking firms, attend a briefing by the Federal Reserve Bank and tour the New York Mercantile and Stock exchanges.

Among those on the trip will be representatives from the state economic development office, the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board, regional economic development organizations and utility companies.

Dardenne is currently secretary of state. He'll take office as lieutenant governor on Nov. 22 after winning a special election earlier this month.
