Governor John Bel Edwards is expressing disappointment with the Louisiana Senate after it voted Tuesday against minimum wage and equal pay legislation.
Senators shot down proposals to approve a bill that would've hiked the state's minimum wage to $8.50 an hour. They also rejected legislation to require equal pay by businesses awarded state contracts.
The governor says the state "should be offended" that its wage gap is the nation's largest.
