Gov. Bobby Jindal gave state workers a four-day holiday for Independence Day.
The governor made July 4 and July 5 legal holidays through an executive order. Jindal declared the dates days of public rest.
However, the order allows appointing authorities to require officers or employees to work on the holidays when it is necessary “for the efficient administration.”
