Taxpayers helped to foot the bill for a special legislative session that didn't produce a budget agreement.

The Advocate reports it cost around $643,000 to hold the special session that ended last month.

Per diem and mileage costs for lawmakers to get to Baton Rouge made up most of the expenses while staff and security costs also contributed.
