Louisiana Special Session Called
Gov. John Bel Edwards has called a special session of the Louisiana Legislature.
The special session will convene at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, February 13, and must adjourn by midnight on February 22.
The governor wants the Legislature to address the state’s budget shortfall and believes a special session is necessary to spread cuts across government and minimize cuts to critical state services.
Edwards plans to lay out the specifics of the budget cuts this week.
The Legislature is not scheduled to convene its regular legislative session until April 10, 2017.
