Louisiana Legislature Special Session Begins Monday

Louisiana lawmakers are returning to Baton Rouge Monday for a special session to fix the state's budget shortfall.

Governor John Bel Edwards called for the meeting to resolve the over $300 million mid-year spending gap.

The governor has proposed cuts to state payouts to hospitals and dipping into the state's reserves to make the fix.

A recent UNO survey found broad support for Edwards' call for a special session.
