Louisiana Legislature to Adjourn Early in Favor of Special Session
Gov. John Bel Edwards announced this week that the Louisiana Legislature will adjourn Friday, three weeks ahead of its scheduled date of adjournment.
An early end to the regular legislative session will allow Legislators to convene in a special legislative session scheduled to start on May 22.
The special session to address the state’s budget crisis will adjourn no later than June 4, the scheduled adjournment date of the regular session. At stake is $648 million in temporary taxes set to expire on July 1.
A February special session aimed at the budget failed to pass any taxes to close the budget gap.
