Louisiana Special Session Convenes Minutes After Adjournment of Regular Session
The Louisiana Legislature adjourned its regular legislative session Thursday, June 8, 2017, and immediately convened a 12-day special legislative session to pass the state’s operating budget for the financial year beginning July 1, 2017.
The Legislature was unable to reach an agreement on the budget during the regular session. House Democrats want to allocate the entire state operating budget while House Republicans are set on only funding a portion of the budget so there is a cushion in case the revenue prediction is wrong.
The session is to adjourn no later than Monday, June 19, 2017. This is Louisiana’s second special session this year.
