The 2019 Legislative Session is Underway

Politics

(KTVE/KARD) – (4/9/19) Typically, the 60-day session features talk of deep budget cuts and balancing but that’s not the case this year.

There’s no talk of huge deficits but there’s still plenty of money issues.

Governor John Bel Edwards and Republicans are at odds over how much Louisiana should be spending overall.

Lawmakers will also discuss hot topics like the death penalty, abortion, sports betting, and Marijuana.

This session comes months before a big October election where the Governor’s seat, six statewide jobs, and more than 100 Legislative Seats are up for grabs.
