BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Local plants are threatening to do business somewhere else if the Louisiana economy continues to suffer. 

The Greater Baton Rouge Industry Alliance, which has members like CF Industries, Exxon Mobil and William Olefins, gathered together 20 plant managers at a quarterly meeting Friday to discuss the group's most recent Economic Outlook results. 

Plant managers argued that low oil prices and new taxes hurt business. 

They also threatened to "seek alternative locations for investment" if the state becomes less competitive.
