Upon receiving the award, Representative Hensgens said, “It is an honor and a privilege to receive the Governmental Affairs award. I stand by the work done by the SWLA foundation, and I am happy to hear that we agree on so many important issues.”
The Southwest Chamber of Louisiana presented this award and many others to State and Federal legislators for their pro-business, pro-Southwest Louisiana legistation. Elected officials from all of Louisiana and Washington, D.C. were invited to the Legis-Gator Luncheon held at the L’Auberge Casino in Lake Charles.
Hensgens represents the Abbeville, North Vermilion, Kaplan area in the parish, along with all of Cameron Parish.
