Louisiana: The State We’re In

Louisiana: The State We’re In
»»» Tonight at 7:00 on LPB

Governor Edwards laid out his plans in a statewide speech on Thursday to address the state’s budget crisis just days before lawmakers come to Baton Rouge for a three-week special session. New numbers from the Revenue Estimating Conference show the current budget deficit at nearly $850 million with a $2 billion projected shortfall next fiscal year. Lawmakers and the governor will debate raising taxes, cutting programs or a combination of both to balance the budget. • House Speaker Taylor Barras (R-New Iberia) and Senate President John Alario (R-Westwego) discuss the upcoming session and share their thoughts with Kelly Connelly on how the three-week special session could unfold. Barras says, “As you search for this amount of revenue or to fill this kind of hole, I think you probably need to get a little creative in your thought process of how you accomplish that.” Alario adds, “I think there’s going to be some new revenue measures that come along. Nobody wants to do that, but unfortunately that may be the only place we can go.” • A policy brief crafted by the non-partisan Public Affairs Research Council (PAR) states “The state’s budget malady is the worst Louisiana has seen since the 1980s oil bust. PAR President Robert Travis Scott discusses how Louisiana got into this hole and recommends a framework to design balanced budgets in the future.
