Louisiana is the trashiest state in the nation. At least, that’s what Assistant Secretary over State Parks Robert Barham thinks, The USA Today Network reports.

“I’m convinced we’re the trashiest state in America,” Barham said in a budget hearing, according to the USA Today Network. “We should hang our heads in shame when Arkansas and Mississippi are cleaner than Louisiana.”
