State ATC commissioner leaving office at end of December
BATON ROUGE - The head of Louisiana's Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control is leaving at the end of December.
In a news release Tuesday, Commissioner Troy Hebert announced his resignation after serving in the post for the past five years. He says he looks forward to spending time with family and didn't rule out a possible future political run.
The former state senator thanked Gov. Bobby Jindal for the appointment and said he'd accomplished his goal of making the regulatory agency efficient, effective and consumer-friendly.
During his tenure, Hebert says he reduced the agency's budget by 30 percent, increased enforcement of illegal activities and reduced the time it takes to get permits from 35 days to three.
Jindal's office said Hebert is leaving at the end of the administration and the next governor will appoint his successor.
