La. Legislators Still Working To Balance Next Year’s State Budget
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Senators have agreed to trim a wide array of tax break programs and shrink spending on Louisiana's film tax credit, as they continue to work on ways to balance next year's budget.
The tax changes that won passage Friday and Saturday are part of a larger puzzle. Negotiations continue between the House and the Senate about how to generate new dollars to stop deep cuts to public colleges and health care services.
Republican Sen. Robert Adley presented several of the tax break scale-back proposals Saturday. He says he expects the final deal over how to raise taxes and lessen state subsidies for business will be cobbled together in a legislative conference committee.
Time is short. The legislative session is in its final days and must end by Thursday
