Louisiana to Convene Third Special Session
The Louisiana Legislature will convene its third special session of the year on Monday, June 18, 2018.
Gov. John Bel Edwards issued a call for the session on the same day he signed the skeleton operating budget passed by the legislature in the last special session.
Lawmakers will aim to pass legislation regarding state sales and use tax to raise money to fund state services taking deep cuts in the current budget.
Gov. Edwards and legislators have been meeting in the interim hoping to reach an effective solution before the deadline for adjournment.
The special session must adjourn no later than June 27, 2018.
